Key theme: Collaboration
“To go fast, go alone. To go far, go together”
Date: A Friday evening and all day Saturday sometime in the first half of [?] 2020.
Cost: Making a profit is not the focus. Figures TBC but $[75?] per person to cover catering and hire of venue.
Vision: Encourage collaboration, empower new thinking, connecting people. And tangible connections and results.
Format: An unconference turns to the attendees and asks them to design the program. On the first night there would be short lighting talks from key players in Canterbury across: Arts, Environment, Tech, Business, Community etc and then a brainstorming occurs of topic ideas – they are voted on and become the sessions the next day. Seek topics for each of those areas so some structure and curation/direction.
Organised by: You? Definitely a team, kind of coordinated and led by Steven Moe but with collaborative approach emphasised and with input welcome from wide variety of people…. so yeah, you.
Sponsors: Not normal… As many organisations as possible “sponsoring” in various ways (but just whatever they can contribute, not based on Gold/Silver/Bronze etc eg for some might just be mentioning in their newsletters). This approach could mean there are many dozens. Canterbury Impact Collective to help coordinate.
Venue: TBC (but Ara?). Need break out rooms and low cost.
Rough idea of program: Friday evening, gather and over a meal and hear lightning talks from experts in several areas. Develop program together. On the Saturday assemble again and divide into different workstreams as follows.
|9:15-10 am||Session 1|
Have a time for working out next steps – follow up a week later?
Will try to organise a meeting likely in October to start the collaboration process in person and work out who can help with what!
