Deep Dive Workshops (120/150/180 minutes)
New for 2019, the biggest blocks on the Upswell schedule are for workshops that go deep and have a major impact. They can be a thorough introduction to a skill or methodology, a structured exploration of a social issue, or an outcome-oriented brainstorming session.
Workshops (45/60/75 minutes)
Whether it’s training participants to think differently or sharing tools they can put into practice, we are looking for workshops that are experiential, action-oriented, and focused on facilitating connections among participants.
Reflection Activities (30/60 minutes)
Help changemakers connect with their inner life by refreshing their minds and spirits.
Focus Groups (30 minutes)
Pick a critical issue and lead a high-energy, small-group discussion about challenges, lessons learned, and new solutions.
Science/Tech Demonstrations (30 minutes)
Do you have a technology or science innovation that’s advancing the way we do changework? Showcase it in the Public Square! Please pitch hands-on, interactive demos that are best shared in small groups.
Spark Talks (10 minutes)
On stage in the Public Square, what big, bold idea do you want to share with a curious audience?
