We will be gathering at the Chateau Lacombe located in the heart of downtown Edmonton. Chateau Lacombe Hotel is an iconic landmark hotel offering spectacular panoramic views of the North Saskatchewan River valley and is walking distance Shaw Conference Centre, Arts District, shopping and nightlife.
Each morning we will hear from two world renowned keynote speakers and panels. These panels will dive deeper into the work that residents are doing to build community. The City of Edmonton is hosting the event and Tamarack will be the learning agenda host and will bring a deep understanding of co-generative learning to the space. This will include small and large group conversations and creative design features that include a learning wall, active twitter feeds, a neighbour market and much more.
Lunch and three breaks are included in your conference fee and there will be plenty of time for walks or just sitting in a garden during breaks.
Each afternoon after our inspiring keynotes and panels, we will break out into workshops. You will have the choice of getting onto buses for the afternoon and going on an experiential learning excursion where we will combine tours and lectures from speakers who actually do the work of ABCD daily. Or you can stay at the hotel each day and join one of our 20 workshops that will be led by Thought Leaders and your peers.
Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in a four part Masterclass led by faculty from around the world - each with a certificate provided by the Tamarack Institute.
Stay tuned as our agenda continues to evolve!
