The Feast: Social Innovation Conference

Website copy for social innovation conferences can get a little wordy, so I’d like to take a stab at explaining this thing called "The Feast" in simple language.

Here’s what I know about it:

It takes place in New York City.

It takes place at the Scandinavia House, which is a bright and airy building just south of Grand Central Station.

It costs $395 and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, and coffee breaks.

Of the 150 people that will be there, I’ll know four:

Emily and JB from Red Antler, Scott from Behance, and Michael from All Day Buffet.

Scrolling through the agenda, this looks like the kind of event that a lot of young, tech-savvy and enthusiastic people will be going to. Based on the descriptions of the talks, the people speaking have thought of creative ways to get through to the audience. For example, a guy named Chad Rea from ecopop is giving a talk called "Tomorrow will be Opposite Day." The description is as follows:

The opposite of tomorrow is today. And today, not tomorrow, is the day to start doing the opposite of what outside forces may be leading you to believe. By learning to declare your own opposite day across all aspects of your life, and change the way you and others might think, you can start to reach your full potential as a true change agent.

People that try to use creativity for good are some of the most interesting people in the world. I’m looking forward to meeting them.
