Seriously. What does it? What nudges some events into the category of “awesome” so that they are nominated for the $1,000 Award of Awesomeness? What is it about some events that leave attendees saying, as this community member did in 2021: “The event was one of the most thought-provoking and thoughtful conversations I’ve participated in recently. That’s what I’ve come to expect from Spirit & Place and I’m so grateful for it.”
Gather with Spirit & Place Program Director Erin Kelley and past festival Selection Committee members, Award of Awesomeness judges, event creators, and festival presenters Darren Chittick, Kathi Ridley-Merriweather, Aaron Welcher, and Sara Hindi to discuss what it takes to design a truly memorable and “oomph-laden” festival event.
This gathering is designed for those wishing to learn more about Spirit & Place so that they might submit a competitive event application. While all are welcome, it is an informational session and not a public program.
