Who are we looking for?

This year, we’re looking to hear from speakers and performers who have captured the need for people to look at things from a different perspective. We are particularly interested in individuals who have taken an approach to reinvent their discipline and portray a comprehensive knowledge of a topic through their design or through an experience. Performers are given more flexibility in this regard, with more emphasis being placed on innovation.
