Get pumped for the festival weekend by exchanging ideas with the creative thinkers in our own backyard. Pre-events include:
Learn How to be a More Innovative, Creative Thinker
Explore the intersection of conventional and creative thinking in your own brain! Author and facilitator William Donius will teach the Ideation method from his book Thought Revolution. You’ll learn how to blend divergent, innovative ideas with more logical, analytical thoughts to tackle the thorniest obstacles and problems faced in your personal and professional life.

Observe a House of Genius session, where professionally anonymous panelists from the community meet to collaborate and discuss problems faced by presenting entrepreneurs. Genius@Murmuration is a very different way to network, where panelists are introduced by the quality of their ideas rather than their professional qualifications. This is not a “pitch,” and the entrepreneurs are not asking us to help them find funding…they are asking us to help explore a critical problem that will help them succeed.

Murmuration celebrates the convergence of art and nature with the works of Bill Smith. His pieces function as studies in the design of nature. The Spherodendron sculpture was inspired by the forces of nature that drive the formation of complex networks—the biological, the behavioral, the physical. The Spherodendron is inspired by every complex structure in the world, from the filament networks of cells to the macrowebs that make up the Internet.
