What we're about
Join us for a multidisciplinary networking, learning and collaboration. Taking inspiration from The Medici Effect*, The Renaissance, and even such creative collaborations as Burning Man...How can the intersection of science and technology with arts, consciousness, culture, philosophy..etcetera...amplify innovation and create new ways of thinking, behaving, expressing and living?
We will also explore questions around the evolving edge of science and technology and their contribution to improving our collective knowledge and experience. How can they best serve us and the planet?
This meetup group is one of the local communities of The Ollin Institute (http://www.ollininstitute.com) (pronounced "All-in"). Given the intention of the group, we will be doing multi-meetup events with our other groups such as Express Yourself (http://meetup.com/express-yourself-nyc)(Arts) which we have also just launched in New York City. We will also be offering curating other local events to offer.
*Frans Johansson’s The Medici Effect shows how breakthrough ideas most often occur when we bring concepts from one field into a new, unfamiliar territory, and offers examples how we can turn the ideas we discover into path-breaking innovations.
"When you bring together diverse teams and perspectives, you have the ability to create an exponential increase in ideas....Diverse teams create far more ideas than homogenous teams" -Frans Johansson
