Registration 1-2pm, Event Begins at 2pm
<R>evolution is… a journey that endlessly creates itself,
…a continuous cultivation of new abilities, learning, trying, sharpening the senses,
…a grand adventure with symptoms of connectivity, love, sympathy and compassion granting a moral compass to foster intersectional ideating,
…an experience enhanced by action – internal investigations, skillful listening of the spaces in between and exploration beyond borders.
<R>evolution gives rise to a forum of solid deep listening to ideas worth spreading.

Registration: 1pm- 2pm
Session One: Worlds Seldom Seen 2pm – 3pm
Sharpen your senses. Be primed and ready. Defy gravity. Go where you don't belong. Don't believe in limits. Leave your mind behind. Rare, behind the scenes vistas of Worlds Seldom Seen lead you to sweet, tender bridges of <R>evolutions again and again re-imagined. Proofed, with your own eyes, your own heart, your own mind. You'll take an inside slideout approach. This is what EPIC looks like. This is what ah-ha feels like.

Session Two: Radicals & Rebels 3:30pm – 4:30pm
For a fully <R>(adiant) evolution, for back-story engineers: Life is all about getting the goods. When a great day hits, they are there. Everybody has a back story. Sometimes heading out of bounds takes us farther than we intended to go: whether it's to an unXplored zone, a higher elevation or a new perspective. Had a life-altering moment in the backcountry? Send it their way...to the artist wild about creativity, to the diabetes activist, to the unconventional woman worker, or to the round-the-world-do-gooder. Stand up for and with them as these forces of nature say, "Yes, on creativity." They didn't invent <R>evolution - they just made it - a wild ride any renegade could take.

Session Three: Dynamic Failure 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Ideas may be too radical and multiple failures may have followed. But it is in the getting up that resilience and strength of these ideas and storytellers are revealed. You'll hear from students, educators, an adventurer, a soldier, a human resource expert and a collaborative artist. When people stand together with this boldness, turning Dynamic Failures around yields treasures beyond measure. Surprise, these are not political talks nor religious talks, but certainly the evolution of these storytellers will release fresh thinking your way.

Session Four: Divided We Fall 8:00pm – 9:00pm
When injustice becomes law, <R>evolution becomes duty. You'll Xperience "otherness" and it's impact from an author, a journalist, an immigration attorney, and an immigrant. To accomplish Xtraordinary feats, there must be a vision: an unshakable idea that will set the foundation for a future that benefits not just the few, but the many. This type of thinking is now needed more than ever as humanity moves from adolescent to adulthood. Resist assimilation, eradication, and implosion. We are not the first; we will not be the last migrants to this continent."What happens when Humanity's lost its way?" Take the road less traveled, it leads to <R>evolution, on the well-worn and beaten path. See it. Get it. Do it. Action! Scale spectacularly.
