The Unusual Suspects Festival: Building a Coalition of Collaborators in 2015
Following the success of the Unusual Suspects Festival in September 2014, Collaborate, SIX, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation are launching a 'next steps' flyer that considers some key themes for collaboration in 2015.
Following last year's Unusual Suspects Festival, which brought over a thousand people together to explore the relationship and intrinsic connection between social innovation and collaboration, we are delighted to launch 'Building a Coalition of Collaborators in 2015'. This short flyer draws on the many conversations and sessions held during the festival and highlights six key themes workig towards successful collabroation in 2015.
We are keen to develop the concept of the unusual suspects further, to embed new learning, and continue to build a growing community of collaborators in 2015. We invite you to share your thoughts, ideas, and comments around building a coalition this year and beyond.
