Inspiring Possibilities: 2014 Innovation Showcase

“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” ? Gloria Steinem, American journalist

This year’s theme is, “Inspiring Possibilities”. 

The word, ‘inspire’ is a verb that the Oxford dictionary defines as “to fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.” 

The wide of range pitches/project ideas received from more than 100 Activators are a clear indication that the possibilities for innovation are limitless. The Showcase Expo will be a physical space where all submitted work will be displayed for all to see and to spark conversations.

The 2014 Innovation Showcase is an exciting event in the ACTIVATE! calendar for many reasons. Activators from across the country get the opportunity of getting together. It’s also an opportunity to reflect on each other’s ideas and the potential of collaborating to address the most pressing issues in our various communities and the country. During the interactive sessions, Activators will get to “pick” the brains of leading individuals in the innovation sectors. We imagine a world café/ speed-updating session where a room full of people share their ideas and insights, and inspire the network to think bigger, bolder, wider, deeper; more and more innovative, creative and connected. 

All Activators will receive an official invitation to the Showcase. So please, save the dates and make sure you don’t miss it. 

Showcase dates: 17 – 18 January 2014 (16 and 19 January will be travel days)
Venue: Alpha Conference Centre, Magaliesberg
