Doing Stuff – A Conversation Series
Born from an idea that we’re so often hindered from trying new things and taking that big leap, because we’re stuck before we even start, Doing Stuff was a live panel/conversation series aimed at “Tackling the big ‘scary monsters’ that so often inhibit us from… Doing Stuff.”
Our focus was on creating an intimate group experience, led by panelists from varied backgrounds, professional experitise and life experiences, that leads to a truly honest, vulnerable and raw conversation around the evening’s topic. Our goal was to create a stripped down, no rules experience where our panelsts could share honest experiences with a room full of active participants who could bring their own stories to the table, bring greater understanding to the issue, and hopefully inspiring someone to go out there and do something new.
Our first event was held in January of 2017 at Anelace Coffee in Northeast Minneapolis. We kept it loose, we kept it simple and we kept our phones off for the duration. The end result was an amazingly deep conversation about "Failure," shared between not only our panelists stories, but our attendees questions and input. All said, it was a pretty powerful night.
All said and done, we hosted nine unique events in over three years. We dug deep on the topics of Failure, Fear, Possibility, Doubt, Expectations, Risk, Resilience, Sacrifice and Closure with some amazing panelists, loyal attendees and spectacular hosts. It was a true honor to have shared these moments with you all and we thank you all for bringing your whole selves to these conversations.
Below is a gallery of images from all our events over the years. Huge thanks to Grayson Hary & Nathan Elias for capturning these moments for us.
