This September, with the buzz of Pollination still pulsating in our hearts, the Bloom Network team set out to Planet Home – a weekend long edutainment experience in San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts. Planet Home brought together thousands of individuals and organizations in the VILLAGE to amplify solutions to the planet’s greatest environmental challenges. The gorgeous backdrop for the experience was comprised of thought-provoking art and music, and the focus was a good dose of environmental awakening through workshops, talks, and incredible exhibits. The event also included VISIONS – an exclusive summit, as part of the Planet Home program, inviting “world business leaders and global thought leaders to discover actionable environmental solutions.”
The Bloom Network team took the opportunity to network with potential collaborators, reconnect with allies and supporters of our work, and take in the creative collective that was brought together by Planet Home, an EQ event. We also wanted to take the opportunity and extend a warm invitation to attendees to join Bloom Network at an Unofficial “Afterparty”. With the invitation of Sean Stevens, on Sunday evening we moved the festivities to the heart of SF, atop the home of an incredible emergent creator space he’s working on. Momentum ∞ [Momentum Infinity] brings together artists and makers for co-creation and exploration – a perfect space for us to stew in the radiance we’ve been absorbing.
Some 30-40 open minds came through the backdoor of Odd Job – a craft cocktail bar downstairs – ascended the stairs of the co-working space, and stepped through a portal of opportunities on the roof. The Bloom Network team took the chance to invite our guests co-create on the rooftop space with us. We brought pillows and notebooks, puzzles and markers, and asked our guests to help us create the space they’d like to play in. Our backdrop was the warm late-summer air, twinkling city, and the magical blooming techno flower of Sustainable Magic.
See how it all came together:

The result was a warm gathering of minds, sharing their experiences, brainstorming new connections and re-meeting each other for the first time. The event was a welcome continuation to what started at Pollination, furthered at Planet Home, and continues to this day with the work Bloom Network is doing to connect and co-create a billion acts of regeneration.
New relationships blossomed with experts in fields from solar to finance, from art to technology, movement building, indigenous leadership networks in the Amazon, and permaculture. The conversations that sprouted continue to inspire us!
