ProjectFresh & Mindshare Los Angeles – March Events

ProjectFresh and Mindshare Los Angeles, two related event series curated by Douglas Campbell, promise opportunities for participants to share ideas, foster dialogue, build community, problem solve and take action on a wide range of issues. At the same time, these events promise attendees a fun, socially engaging night out with other people who like to mix intelligent conversation with partying.  

This month, ProjectFresh explores the implications and strategies of a concept called Wisdom 2.0, which revolves around the ways in which people can live with deeper meaning in a technology-rich world. A week later, Mindshare LA celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with an evening of live music, hors d’oeuvres, games and prizes, as well as a soon to be announced program. Finally, towards the end of the month, ProjectFresh screens a documentary called Waiting for Superman. Details regarding all three events follow.

ProjectFresh Presents: Wisdom in the Information Age

The evening encourages audience participation throughout and will explore such questions as:

  • What does ‘Wisdom’ mean to us – and why is it important to cultivate?
  • What are some of the challenges that we face in the always-on, connected World?
  • Are there techniques that we can employ to negotiate ‘information overload’ and become more present?
  •  How can we create lasting benefit to our well-being, effectiveness and our relationships with ourselves and others?

Action: The discussion is designed to leave attendees with avenues for action. In addition, with guidance from the community, ProjectFresh aims to begin organizing a larger, follow up event, which will assemble a more detailed program to explore the challenges – and solutions – in greater depth.

Mindshare Los Angeles – St. Paddy’s Day Program

Our family St. Patrick’s Day tradition consists of preparing a corned beef and cabbage meal and enjoying it at home. When I learned that Mindshare LA was planning its own celebration, however, I knew I had to check it out. While the full program has not been announced yet, the evening promises a fun and engaging way to celebrate the holiday. Perhaps I’ll see you there.
