PopTech Camden 2013: Sparks of Brilliance

Dates: October 24 – 26, 2013
Location: Camden, Maine

Creativity is the essence of our humanity, the great enricher of our lived experience, and the key to our shared resilience. It is found in every person and in every field and endeavor.

But where does our creativity come from? Necessity or daydreams? Ambition or laziness? Purpose or play? Natural genius or rigorous process? All of the above … or some other, nameless place? Can it be taught or amplified? How is the creative instinct expressed differently in business, the sciences, society and the arts? What can these learn from each other? What does science reveal about the inventive mind? How do new platforms of connection and collaboration change the process of innovation? What new imperatives do they create? And how do we meet a world of fierce challenges with a spirit of creative possibility?

October 24-26, 2013, PopTech will convene a group of imaginative visionaries from many different fields for a joyful, jaw-dropping, urgent, anti-disciplinary exploration of creativity in the 21st century.

All PopTech gatherings feature bold and visionary presentations from some of our world’s most compelling innovators, interwoven with extraordinary live performances and other one-of-a-kind surprises. Our tone is at once intimate and expansive, designed to foster deep relationships and the space and time to think, reflect, connect and collaborate.

At “Sparks of Brilliance,” you will meet thinkers, leaders and doers engaged at the forefront of creativity and innovation. You will be able to share your work with an engaged and influential community; you’ll take home powerful, actionable insights; and you will meet some fantastic potential partners, allies and friends.
