Spectrums

In a world that’s often polarized and divisive, we choose to come together as one to embrace the diversity of spectrums of thought in our community. At the intersection of scepticism and curiosity are understanding and innovation, and the opportunity to embrace new thinking, different positions and opinions. The power of ideas is what propels us forward.

 

Join us for a weekend of ideas and activations as celebrate the contrarians, open-minded thinkers, and doers committed to creating a better tomorrow for our city and the world.
