Unexpected connections are the simplest way of describing creativity.



Wednesday, November 7th
9 AM - 6 PM

Beverly O’NeilL Theater, Long Beach, CA, USA

Today, we are living in the most creative moment in history. Creativity has always been about change, but it was always us needing to change something. Now it is us who need to change. Our ability to stay relevant is being challenged. And the new spirit of collaboration is made possible through technology.
— John Jay

The Things that Define Us

Unexpected connections are the simplest way of describing creativity. In its most basic form, it’s pattern recognition, and at its most complex, it’s a tangled web that humans have become surprisingly great at deconstructing.

Imprint and MAEKAN: Unexpected Connections is about celebrating those who have embraced new intersections around them in both positive and inventive ways.

Our format invites fascinating people from contrasting disciplines to talk and find an unexpected common ground. How does the professional athlete connect with the tech entrepreneur? How does the chef build a future with the tech start-up founder? 

Unexpected Connections is about the rich opportunity for exploration when two different vantage points are joined together. We’d be honored to have you participate in this upcoming event slated for November, 2018.
