The amazing range of ideas shared at Creative Technology Day was stellar. It was a day that brought together people who would never normally meet or learn from one another, and for that time, in that place, connections were made that will make our future better.

Over time, this blog will publish about the day, once the extraordinary amount of stuff shared has time to settle into new forms or shapes. Until then, enjoy some images that I hope represent well some of the day’s events – a day that I imagined and the participants collectively made real, and beautiful.
