Breakout activities

You'll have noticed we snuck a few fun activities in there — here's a bit more about what to expect (and how you can take part).

🎤 Community Open Mic

Do you have a special talent (apart from building incredible communities, of course) that you’re willing to share? We're thinking singers, comedians, mimes — anything goes.

If you feel you have something you’d like to bring to our summit stage, please submit your act via this form by Friday, May 7, and we’ll get in touch.

🐶 Pet Talent Show

Can your cat do cartwheels? Does your pooch paint portraits? Can your bunny play the bongos? Hey, perhaps they’re just really, stinking cute — that’s worth showcasing too.

Whatever their skills, we want to meet them in 1 of 4 five-minute slots, as part of our Pet Talent Show. Submit a clip of your pet and the trick you wish to present to our audience via this link, also by Friday, May 7, and we’ll get in touch.

🥳 Community Show & Tell

Think of this as networking — with a twist. You'll be sorted into smaller breakout groups, and given some weird and wonderful prompts to share more about you and your community experience (and hopefully make some meaningful connections).

To recap, that's three days, 30+ speakers, 15 hours of community content – told you it would be an extravaganza, didn't we? We'll see you there!
