What Exactly is The Sum?
You may have noticed that we’ve been teasing out details about something called The Sum this summer. This week, we’re finally pulling back the curtains on this project, which we're super excited about.
The Sum is a two-day creative conference, happening November 6th and 7th at SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco. We want to inspire people to think differently about the city, and with our first conference, we hope to empower guests to see themselves, their work, their free time, and their city from fresh angles, giving them the tools and the inspiration to collectively boost their creative output.
Through interactive activities, engaging experiments, multidisciplinary speakers, and multiple opportunities to spark ideas with people from diverse backgrounds, The Sum will help guests reimagine the possibilities for themselves and their cities.
On the first day, one of our favorite artists, Candy Chang, will be the keynote speaker. Candy is best known for her “Before I Die” project and if you haven’t seen her TED talk, it is worth watching. Zach Klein, Joshua Wolf Shenk, and many others will be speaking. Additional updates will be made in the coming days.
The second day of The Sum will involve workshops around the city. Details will be announced soon.
Oh and for a short time, early bird tickets are available. Use code: EARLYBIRD
