Everything you need to know about this event, exactly in one place

Calling the creative, the innovative, and the curious: Whether you're a writer, an artist, a designer, a researcher, or simply a Bay Area resident who cares about her community, join us on May 25th to channel your powers for good. 

Drink Tank, “a recreational think tank” that brings clever people together to unlock creativity, solve problems, and have fun in the process. We've partnered with the team behind The Trust for Public Land’s Climate-Smart Cities to explore the threat climate change poses to urban areas. During the event you'll hear from their team, and work in small teams to design ways to translate scientific research into relatable, compelling stories to help generate awareness. 

Beers, high fives, and dinner provided by the team at Goose Island, our official event sponsor who will be pairing some of their most innovative beers for this event.


The Trust for Public Land

The Trust for Public Land's mission is to create parks and protect land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. For this Drink Tank we'll focus on their Climate-Smart Cities program and work in small teams on ways to design messages that help educate the general public on the importance of this issue.



VSCO is an art and technology company empowering people everywhere to create, discover, and connect. Their goal is to honor art and artist while fueling a worldwide creative movement through innovative tools and experimental projects. 


Goose Island Beer Company
