In true back-to-school fashion, September kicked off a busy season of partnership and activity: We participated in the Citizens League's #GNLV2014, hosted the inaugural Minnesota Rising Imagine Lab in the Hothouse Coworking Space at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and coordinated two Cascading Conversation Cafes, the latter one facilitated for the Board Repair quarterly gathering!
Things will continue to pick up steam this fall as we prepare for our 5th annual Un/Conference: The Future Is How, slated for Saturday, November 15th. We invite you to co-create the day with us and welcome your proposals for 50-minute breakout sessions by 4pm this Friday, October 3rd!
