“We must hold space for change.”
Reimagining Unconference: People, Power, & Possibility of Work
We invite you to join us on August 18, 2022, for the inaugural Reimagining Unconference: People, Power & Possibility of Work, to reflect on what work is and what it can be.
Using a hybrid Plenary and Open Space format we desire to hold space for new ways of gathering that foster generative ideation and community co-creation. Our hope is to move from conception to inspired individual and collective change.
Who should attend?
This gathering brings together diverse human beings who are committed to redefining and liberating current ways and means of working.
We actively challenge, interrogate, deconstruct and divest.
We collectively support, expand reconstruct and invest.
Because reimagining is a process not an event.

About the Speakers & Sense-makers
To be announced: We seek to hold a plenary session with up to 6 speakers, a panel of fireside chat speakers, and a circle of sense-makers (e.g., visual graphic recorders and sign-language interpreters) to set the tone and facilitate conversations on the theme, People, Power & Possibility of Work.
We believe that uplifting stories and voices from those we do not see in today’s media headlines is a critical addition to our efforts in creating a space for reimagination, connection and creativity.
