Video: OxfordJam’12 Jammed with Good Conversation and Great Ideas
Known as not only “a centre of excellence for creativity, participation, and enterprise,” but also “a place of change,” the location was fitting for this year’s fringe event, which seeks to create a space for the nurturing of social economy and social finance projects from around the globe. As this week’s nine-minute video shows, OxfordJam’12 delivered on its promise of providing an innovative, inclusive, and truly participatory environment.
The short film from the event features highlights from the many sessions, conversations, and good times that were had. As Matt Black from Matter & Co put it, “It’s just a brilliant place to be, full of inspiration and great ideas.” If you didn’t have a chance to participate in this year’s free, open access event, here’s your opportunity to get an inside look at what went on.
What are your thoughts on OxfordJam’12? Have you or your organization taken part in the event or do you plan to in the future? If you’re planning to organize an event, what are your key takeaways?
