Description

We were engaged to help solve the need for a single space to be a keynote stage/audience AND a space for small group breakout sessions. Beginning with a consultancy our responsibility grew to creating a full comprehensive conference design which would enhance deep connection, spark active participation, stimulate collaboration and hopefully global change. The stage transformed into 12 separate brainstorm tables in a collective game; the topics were introduced through dance interludes; chair covers became a phrase generating word game, made a 200 word poem, which then became the swag bags; stretch breaks unknowingly taught choreography which culminated in a 250 person flower; strangers group hugged after only 48 hours.
