Mindcamp Southwest 2020:



Please join us in March 2020 for our third year of Mindcamp Southwest (MCSW) in Oracle, Arizona! 

Mindcamp Southwest is a learning retreat 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 — an amalgam of sessions presented by the best innovation leaders in North America and worldwide.

Mindcamp Southwest is an intimate experience for 50ish curious people to explore a wide range of perspectives on the practice and research of facilitating and advancing creative collaboration. On top of our scheduled workshop programs, there are evening experiences, music, dancing, swimming, hiking, campfires, and just plain fun.

We are currently cooking up the 2020 MCSW theme, you can see more about last year’s theme "Creative Abruption" here


Mindcamp is run by volunteers and priced to break even.

Mindcamp 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. 

Mindcamp Southwest is part of the global family of Mindcamp conferences. Learn more with the links below:

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.
