Original Thinkers, more:

David Holbrooke’s Original Thinkers (OT) is a new, highly curated festival on Telluride’s fall calendar that melds speakers, films, and performance into a powerful four-day experience in Telluride, this year October 3 – 7.

The event offers its audience “a unique perspective on some of the crucial issues of our time.”

OT shows its audience ways to make a real and tangible impact on the critical issues of our time – and there are many, from climate change to immigration. According to Holbrooke: “Our community of Original Thinkers assemble in Telluride and leave at the end of the weekend, changed and charged to make a real difference.”

The upcoming event titled “Change is Hard” features Aaron Belkin, Dallas Goldtooth, and Bonnie Siegler.

A program description is as follows:

“Real societal change is incredibly hard to make happen, especially when working towards tangible and enduring impact. Ramy Essan’s music-fueled the Egyptian Revolution and has lately written songs that have made his home country unsafe for him. Dallas Goldtooth is a Native American activist, singer and comedian who was a leader and organizer at Standing Rock. Acclaimed graphic designer Bonnie Siegler’s book, ‘Signs of Resistance, A Visual History of Protest in America’ is a rich compendium of some of the most effective and memorable art that shaped movements.”
