Celebrating its third year in 2018, [email protected] is one of the largest and most unique social innovation convenings in the U.S.

Each day emerging voices and established thinkers explore the innovations and practices that build stronger, more equitable cities. Each Lab explores the future of society and every attendee will have the opportunity to learn, network and be heard.

Introduced this year is the “Pay What You Can” ticketing. Attendees must register but can choose to pay what they can to participate in the Labs, including attending at no-cost. The event takes place at the IMET Columbus Center, 701 E. Pratt Street, Baltimore, MD. Seating is limited so make sure to register and “pay what you can”!
