Bringing people together with popcorn and screenings of inspiring talks to spark discussion and connections. This event will include a collection of great talks to get us thinking about untapped potential and thinking about what our shared visions for the future might be through the use of all sorts of assets we have around us. From the talents, skills and knowledge of people in our communities and organisations, to the built and natural environment, to our easy access to many technological and social innovations.
