Clear your calendar for Sept. 21. That's when the Second Annual Arkansas Times Festival of Ideas is happening at venues throughout downtown. A number of those featured in this week's Arkansas Visionaries cover story will be offering demonstrations and lectures. It's sort like a local version of TED Talks, or like a series of Clinton School lectures. 

The event runs from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Clinton School, Heifer International, Historic Arkansas Museum and Old State House. All of the programs are free and open to the public, but reservations are requested. See the full lineup and reserve your seat here.

A couple of panel discussions we're especially excited about: 

*2 p.m. at the Old State House: "Rehabilitate of incarcerate? Crime and parole in Little Rock" with Sen. David Sanders, Mayor Mark Stodola and City Director Ken Richardson.

*4 p.m. at the Clinton School: "Fostering a start-up culture in Arkansas" with state Economic Development chief Grant Tennille, the University of Arkansas's Carol Reeves, new Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub head Warwick Sabin, Yelp's Luther Lowe and Bourbon and Boots' Matt Price
