Craft @ PopTech

I’ve been up on the coast of Maine for the past two months with the team at PopTech: prepping for “Sparks of Brilliance”, deep diving into the world of social change, stargazing, exploring, and listening to more than my fair share of country music.  This year’s conference is all about creativity – something that is close to my heart and I believe innate in each of us. We may show it in different ways but it is something so essentially human we can’t lose it no matter how hard we might try.

I can’t wait until Thursday when the Camden Opera House fills with guests from across the globe and speakers guide us on a journey of this central theme. If you can’t be there in person, tune in to watch Thursday and Friday via PopTech‘s live stream: http://www.poptech.org/live – see you there!

Join a CSA

Looking for a way to get access to locally grown, pesticide-free veggies in NYC? I’m proud to be part of the core team at the Central Park West CSA and we’re accepting members through the end of the month. Founded 4 years ago by Forefront Church‘s Jonathan Williams, all veggies are sourced from Angel Family Farm and fruit from Breezy Hill orchard.

Learn more about Angel Family Farm here:

If you’re not on the upper west side, Just Food has a great database of CSAs in the city. It’s a great way to support local farmers and challenge your culinary skills with new produce each week!

Dove: Beautify

I am loving this clever campaign out of Olgivy Toronto for Dove. They created a photoshop action under the name Beautify, that simply undid all the edits of manipulations the re-toucher had completed and added the text: “Don’t manipulate our perceptions of real beauty. #dovepositivechange”

Curious to see how many downloads it got and what the reactions were but definitely an innovative approach to an issue Dove has been dedicated to tackling for over a decade.
