Wherever we come together –  a nationwide festival, a regional event, a small local gathering, or social spaces online, we learn and grow together, by co-creating art, music, story, theater, and spectacle, engaging in robust and respectful conversation with each other and with thought leaders and artists.

Coming to the festival? Plan ahead!

With 12 venues and over 200 sessions and performances, you might want to do some advance planning. While you probably recognize some of the performers and presenters, there’s a wealth of content from people you don’t know, and on subjects you may never have thought of. Now you can scroll through all session descriptions and click to find out the details. Use our searchable/sortable tables to explore some new content, make some notes, and arrive at the festival with a better clue about how you want to spend your time!
