TOPICS


Sustainable Communities

How can we create communities that sustain beyond their founders? How can community-organizers find ways to get paid for their work? What models are there to scale an intimate gathering to reach more people?

Ritual Design

How do we create rituals that help people bond with each other and make meaning of their lives, while still remaining accessible to the mainstream? How can we use tools like design thinking to intentionally design the culture of our organizations?

The New Divinity

Is Crossfit a religion? Where are the spiritual-but-not-religious finding connection? What can our communities across the secular-spiritual spectrum learn from each other, and what organizations are bridging the gap now between the two?

SCHEDULE


We will have 5-10 speakers per day over the course of the summit. You'll have a chance to view each day's talks anytime that day. If you'd like permanent access to a downloadable copy, we recommend supporting the Summit and buying an all-access pass!

LOCAL EVENTS


This event takes place online, but you'll still have a chance to meet people in person!

We'll be coordinating volunteers who will be hosting local gatherings while the event takes place.

ORGANIZERS


Casey Rosengren

Casey is an entrepreneur, writer, and community-builder. He founded Hacker Paradise, a traveling community for digital nomads, as well as a number of other community-related projects, like Recess LabsProject Mischief, and the  Gathering Lab (with Tony!).

He's excited to bring together the global community of gatherers in one, big, happy conversation.

Tony Bacigalupo

Tony's sort of obsessed with bringing people together. He started Manhattan's first coworking space, New Work City, in 2008—using it as a clubhouse for hundreds of Meetups, workshops, classes, hackathons, unconferences, potlucks, and more.

He now helps others build collaborative spaces all around the world through his consultancy, New Work Cities. Find him on Twitter and Instagram.
