A twist on the classic conference concurrent session. In small groups we will share and discuss ideas, challenges and ask the difficult questions through peer-input processes, panels, storytelling and more.

While we’re together to connect and learn, we also know how important it is to get out of our heads and into our bodies. We’ll be hosting a series of movement sessions, creative workshops and interactive play experiences to energize you, metabolize your learning, and allow space for self-expression.

During our interactive design labs individuals and organizations will demonstrate, test and challenge lab approaches, social R&D methods and share tools and best practices. Through collaborative design thinking exercises we’ll tackle problems and explore solutions

We are serious about creating space for connections and relationship building. Over the course of 3 days, you will have the opportunity to engage in formal and informal conversations with like-minded practitioners, leaders and peers in our dedicated lounge and through our innovation dates.

We will be exploring a variety of themes and topics through a speaker series featuring thought leaders, collaboratives, passionate entrepreneurs and unheard voices who will be sharing their big ideas, lived experience and vision for the future.
