To be disruptive is to shatter conventional ways of thinking, interacting, and organizing.
In a moment when Santa Fe and cities across the world are asking major questions about their social, economic, environmental, and technological futures, Creative Santa Fe is embarking on a new dialogue series to foster disruptive thinking. From these dialogues, we aim to generate visionary and collaborative new approaches to respond to the most pressing issues facing our city’s communities.
The Disruptive Futures Dialogue Series will be a multi-year community engagement, in partnership with organizations across our city. It is our goal that this series will leverage and accentuate Santa Fe’s unique assets and capacities to find new pathways forward for progress.
Harnessing the power of creativity and collaboration, this series will convene Santa Feans from all walks of life and in a wide variety of fields to examine critical issues brought forth by our partners. Each dialogue will support thinking and tackling subjects in bold new ways.
