Changemaker Week 2018

It’s hard not to feel a sense of energy and excitement as we hit September here on campus.  As the sunny weather and festivals go on hiatus, fall is here and ready for new projects, fresh motivation and all the world-changing ideas.  We figured there was no better time to host our inaugural Changemaker Week here at Roundhouse! With a focus on helping you learn, connect and take action, we’re confident you’ll find something that calls your name on this value-packed roster of events. For the first time in our space you can even win prize money at the Social Innovation Challenge.

Unless otherwise noted, all events are free of charge and open to all.  To help us coordinate these events, we ask that you claim your tickets in advance.

We are super grateful to be working with so many fantastic community partners to make this week possible.  Definitely check out their organizations, they’re up to good work!
