Come join Spark Live and Showcase your Content!

The deadline for submission is August 20th, 2021

Hello and thank you for your interest in making content with us! 

Spark Live is where we produce all our live & recorded content for organizations. We cover a wide range of narrative themes each quarter so be on the lookout for areas that interest you. For the Q4 2021, our narrative theme is Learning and Unlearning.

This quarter we will, again, investigate a dichotomy of concepts, so as to explore a broad set of ideas, or two sides to the same coin. This quarter’s theme, learning and unlearning, seeks to offer a specific lens on how we acquire skills, and how to be critical in this acquisition, identifying needed qualities and mitigating emotional resistance to learning new things. Within the context of a “Singularity mindset,” understanding the pace of change, and the impact rapidly emerging technologies have on our selves, our surroundings, and our world at large, it is particularly important to learn how to learn, how to let go of lessons learnt in the past, and to keep an open mind when new information and knowledge will become available. For this quarter, we are envisioning a broad approach to the theme of learning and unlearning.

We look forward to hearing from you!
