In our technology driven, ever-evolving world, we crave connection more than ever before. We look to connect in many different ways and forms to have a sense of belonging, purpose and satisfaction. Hear talks from local speakers who are making connections through research, objects, laughter and presence. What they see in the world may just change your perspective too.
