Dallas Graham talks about the beauty of unexpected collaborations?and how we can find it all around us in our lives, work and the world.
Dallas Graham is the founder and creator of the Red Fred Project: a children’s book collaboration between himself and 50 children with critical illnesses across the 50 states. He created Red Fred and his colorful friends, The Jolly Troop, six years ago and has been telling stories with them ever since. Dallas is a photojournalist, graphic designer, writer and enjoys discovering creative ways of connecting people through their stories. He has produced a number of personal and community-driven projects and initiatives and can’t seem to turn off his “idea” switch. The Red Fred Project is a culmination of three of his favorite things: narratives, hope, and children.
Come learn about the insights Dallas has gained while collaborating across ages, organizations and communities and join in the discussion of why the need and impulse to collaborate is more important than ever in our society.
