Tens of thousands work at night in Dallas' service and hospitality industries, arts and cultural sectors, retail, and more. Help us encourage all to register for the COVID vaccine and share our #VaccinateTheNight posts on social media.
24HourDallas introduces its Noctis ("of the night") Award.
In recognition for their voluntarism in support of 24HourDallas' mission, the first Noctis Awards were presented to Augustine Jalomo and Rhiannon Martin, co-chairs of our inaugural Dallas Digithon.
In the Night?
24-hour places are not only statistically different than sprawling 9-5 cities but have statistically superior economic performance.
A culturally diverse nightlife can lead to a more inclusive and ethnically diverse city. We need creative, smart policy that drives cultural innovation.
Cities are no longer 9-to-5 systems. They are 24-hour organisms that require free, open, and inviting spaces to live, work and enjoy.
The idea is to change the dialogue from the city government thinking about life in the daytime to thinking about – and allocating more resources to – our life at night.
London's night-time economy is integral to our success as a city – employing 1.6 million and contributing billions to our economy.
Once you get people to see that the issues and the opportunities at night are really something that have to be planned, rather than policed, then you're going to have a much more successful social economy.
Night-time is the new competitive edge for post-industrial cities.
In the past, the presumption of nightlife has been that it's in the dark, and that it's where dark things happen. It's really just the other 9-to-5.
