Idea Exchange

Thursday, March 15th | 6:30 PM-8:30 PM

We're back for another year of the 24HCP! And in anticipation of the event, we're recruiting Citizen Teams, and want YOU to come share your ideas with us. Let's kick back, drink some beer (or your beverage of choice), and talk about ideas that you have the for the community. This is a speed dating-style, informal, idea generation session. It's the event where teams, MIBRARY and Krewe De Canailles, all began. Don't be shy. Bad ideas are welcomed. No idea is too small. No strings attached.

For this year's Idea Exchange, we've decided to partner with our friends at TEDx and The Current. TEDx will be available to discuss "Ideas Worth Sharing" in advance of their TEDx event on September 8. The Current's editor Christiaan Mader will be on hand to talk about The Current's upcoming relaunch this April. He's issued an open call for "Questions Worth Answering." Ask him yours in person at the Idea Exchange or at The Current's Relaunch Party on March 21 at Jefferson Street Pub. Sign up for The Current's Weekly WIre newsletter and get a spot on the guest list.
