Videographers Karen Kilroy and Jimmy Friend shot video of the Storm the Palace forum, November 1, 2005, and edited that down into short clips of great ideas surfaced during the world cafe portion of the event - visit the links below to see the action.

  • ARTS: proposal to develop an arts and music expo for local
    artists, which would help artists broaden their exposure and help all
    people from Northeast Ohio experience diverse local culture.
  • EDUCATION: suggests people from business and non-profits come to the schools to
    help students understand opportunities in the real world ahead.
  • EDUCATION: students need to engage in active, participatory learning - apply what
    they learn to real world situations - gives example of the robotics
  • ENVIRONMENT: realization "in this built environment everything is controlled - the
    streets look the way they do here because some guy was taught in school
    that's how you make streets". So what does that realization offer us
    for a better future?
  • HEALTH: explores "Believe in Cleveland" from the perspectives of two
    transplants here, making observations many people choose to be here and
    like and believe in Cleveland - the non-believers seem to be people
    from here who feel "stuck" - "who never left".
  • HEALTH: observation there is positive progress in NEO found in collaboration in
    healthcare, citing the Clinic and University Hospitals sharing
    resources as a great development.
  • TECHNOLOGY: proposal to reuse abandoned, empty, underutilized properties for
    start-up technology businesses, putting the properties back into useful
    service, reducing blight, and at the same time providing much needed
    incubation space for start-ups.
