Social Impact and Cultural Immersion
Grand Opening Celebration of Hub Oaxaca
Oaxaca, like many emerging regions around the world, faces great cultural hurdles to change. There are hundreds of social innovators here working alone or as part of NGO’s and small enterprises. Yet, without a strong culture to support their efforts, these actors are isolated and their initiatives remain outside the mainstream way of doing things. How do you unite these actors and model a “new mainstream.” How do you build a cultural movement that reinforces a culture of social innovation, not just in Oaxaca but anywhere? Join us for 3 days as we explore and experience grass roots social innovation while immersed in one of Mexico’s greatest cultural celebrations – Day of the Dead.
Confirmed Speakers: Lucina Jimenez (Director ConArte and Former Director of Mexico’s National Center for the Arts), Rodrigo Villar (Director New Ventures Mexico City, Saul Fuentes (Director CORAL Oaxaca) Harry Halloran (Halloran Philanthropies), Sergio Oceransky (Founder of Oaxacan Wind Energy Organization Yansa), Ellen Fish, Barefoot College & Founder of Tilonia) and more to be announced….
Who should attend: Social entrepreneurs and impact investors seeking new ways to start and/or support social initiatives in emerging regions; Designers, social architects and others looking for inspiration and guidance in building social movements that inspire change from the grass roots up; Analysts and consultants who want to explore new ways to develop productive projects with high social impact, particularly in the Latin American context.
