VIRTUAL FORUM: UNLEARNING AND INNOVATION

Friday | July 10, 2020 | 10:00-11:00 AM Pacific

Music and dance prevail even during protest marches amidst a pandemic. If we've learned anything from 2020, it's that we need outlets for connection and sociability. Cities have an opportunity to make nightlife better than "normal"— cleaner, safer and more vibrant. Nightlife post-COVID has the potential to be more diverse, inclusive and equitable in patronage, ownership and programming.

Miki Stricker-Talbot was a keynote speaker at RHI's 2020 Sociable City Summit and an inspiration for RHI's Sociable City Vision Innovation Team. She brings unique and unconventional insights on how to "unlearn" and "innovate" during this unprecedented time.

Get inspired to think outside the box. In fact, throw out the box entirely. Learn how to rise to meet challenges without relying on the tools that are tried and true.

RHI PRESIDENT JIM PETERS conducted six  interviews  at the 2020 Sociable City Summit in Seattle with thought leaders from diverse perspectives and backgrounds.

Each shared their personal history and role in programs and strategies on nighttime management.
