Creative brainstorming at it’s best!
We will be bringing together a wide range of people to brainstorm ways to make our community a more resilient and thriving place through the COVID-19 crisis. Although we will have mostly participants from Centre County, PA – folks from anywhere in the world are welcome to participate to bring creative outside perspectives to the table. (and perhaps it will spark ideas to bring back to your own hometown…)
This is NOT another zoom meeting…
We have built a unique platform allowing you to virtually walk around 3 Dots!
Want to have a conversation in the podcast studio – no problem!
Want to listen to some music by the outdoor piano – you got it!
Want to hang out with an artist and view their work – wish granted!
Want to chill in the loft with a few friends – consider it done!
Here’s how it will work.
Register to attend as we only have a limited number of spots. We have found Google Chrome on your computer to be the best browser to use with the platform, and you will need your camera + mic on in order to fully participate.
Once you sign up + claim your spot, consider updating your profile by adding a picture and your linkedin page (if you’d like). You can click on your profile icon in the upper right-hand corner of your browser.
The event will feature local partner organizations who will share with the group a few challenges they are finding in town. We will use these prompts as the starting point to brainstorm creative ideas. During the event, you will have autonomy to ‘virtually’ walk around and join a variety of small group brainstorms – each with their own whiteboard for capturing ideas. After a few rounds, we will group back together to share some of the creative ideas that emerged.
For folks that would like to see their idea come to life, we encourage you to apply for $1000 from 3 Dots by visiting www.3dotsdowntown.com/grants.
