A REGULAR DOSE OF OPTIMISM

Feeling tired of detached virtual interactions? We are, too.

Upswell Pop-Ups are designed for a creative kind of authenticity – connecting you to new people, making sense of the changing world around us, and exploring big ideas about what comes next.

Each Pop-Up is a little different, and all of them capture the dynamic spirit of Upswell in an experiential way and help us define how we shape our communities and systems for years to come.

What might one of the most influential changemakers on the planet have to say about the health and future of civil society? You’re invited to find out for yourself at the second Upswell Pop-Up!

We are tremendously excited to announce that Nobel Peace Prize-winner Jody Williams will join us on June 5 for a powerful conversation with Lynne Twist (author of The Soul of Money) and Dan Cardinali (Independent Sector) about what it means to lead in the face of global uncertainty.

Then, we’ll explore the remarkable mechanics of an Illinois partnership between philanthropy, business leaders, and donors that raised $50 million in COVID-19 relief in just 30 days – and deployed the funds in only a week’s time — by deconstructing and totally imagining their operational processes.

We’ll also have some inspiration from artists, some time to refocus your mind…and a major announcement about a brand new Upswell initiative. We can’t tell you anything else yet. But you’re going to want to tune in to be the first to hear it.
