Let’s Talk Food at FUEL
Why does food matter in the context of this conversation? Because it is a matter of great concern for every single living being in the universe.
Jane and Steven Cox—the 41-year-old husband-and-wife team behind design-slash-branding company Cause+Affect Design Ltd.—have, over the past decade, insinuated their ethos and their esthetic into the fabric of Vancouver society. In addition to serving clients as varied as Volkswagen and Tides Canada, the duo has helped launch the wildly popular Fuse nights at the Vancouver Art Gallery and are the Vancouver producers for PechaKucha, an eclectic speaker series that consistently sells out the 1,200-seat Vogue Theatre. Later this month, on May 29 and 30, they launch their inaugural FUEL conference on the “Future of Urbanity, the Environment and our Lifestyle.
Here are 10 reasons to check it out:
1. We all go to events in our own sectors, be they food events, tech events, design events, or what have you. It’s all very comfortable and we always know many of the people in the room. FUEL is your opportunity to get out of your silo and talk about bigger issues. Fish folks talking to design folks? Something interesting is bound to happen!
2. Views from the outside. Vancouverites can be a little guilty of believing all our own hype and its nice to share ideas with folks who don’t live here. FUEL brings Hong Kong, Boston, Philly, San Fran and London to Vancouver. We wonder what they will say about our best place to live status?
3. FUEL is the beginning of the “C-School State of Mind”…understanding innovation means understanding creativity. Curious? Read more here and immerse yourself in both Day 1 and Day 2 to get the full experience.
4. Online is great but live is better. There’s just no arguing that.
