"We carry our homes within us which enables us to fly." John Cage

Grids are networks of lines that have the power to transmit electricity, form frameworks, and generate communication, but what if our lines are made of curves, circles, desires, and natural fibers? Can we recreate infrastructure from storytelling, sailing, sparkling fruit juice, and self-sufficiency?

With traditional employment, aid, and funding at an all time low, rethinking the traditional grid is vital to our social and economic resilience. And who better to speak about creating new frameworks for thrivingwith little-to-no resourcesthan artists, writers, and creative thinkers?

From a best-selling author who left her home behind in order to write her own narrative; to the co-founder of IZZE Beverage company who worked with farmers and nonprofits to change the way we do business; to a blogger who is obsessed with learning everything she can before the internet crashes; to the director of a contemporary art museum who has created a space in the museum where you can drink, play, and touch the art; to the co-founder of an eco-tourism company who insists on having fun while changing the world; to an internationally acclaimed artist who acknowledges those who came before her and offers a lifeline to those moving ahead; to a poet who singlehandedly solved the housing crisis; this evening of talks will energize you, generate communication, and, hopefully, offer some new frameworks for social and economic resilience!

Sincerely, Tania Katan
