New Frontiers 

pawel-nolbert-315367; MCSW — Mindcamp Southwest

In the spirit and tradition of Mindcamp, Canada’s creativity conference, please join us in our inaugural year of Mindcamp Southwest (MCSW) in March 2018 in Oracle, Arizona!

Mindcamp Southwest is a conference where you can take seminars and classes that teach creativity, innovation, design thinking and leadership skills. It’s a four-day micro-university for personal, professional, and organizational creativity — a feast of concurrent sessions presented by the best creativity leaders in North America and worldwide.

Mindcamp Southwest is an intimate experience for 80 creative people to explore a wide range of perspectives on the practice and research of facilitating creative collaboration. And on top of our scheduled programs, there are evening salons, dialog sessions, music, dancing, swimming, hiking, campfires, and just plain fun.

Mindcamp is run by volunteers and priced to break even.

Southwest is sponsored by Idea Farm Co-op, a team of creative consultants in Phoenix, Arizona who specialize in helping leaders and cross-functional teams who want to innovate, but struggle to collaborate.

Away from the smog in cities, our hearts are drawn west, where the only dust is earth, and the only barrier is the sky. Head west for the silence that roars from a wild heart.
