What’s the History of Mindshare LA?

Mindshare LA has become a mecca for thousands of intellectuals, artists, scientists, media professionals, social entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and other forward-facing characters to meet, broaden their perspectives and expand their circle of connections. The night is centered around a curated program of short talks and performances.

In May 2012, hundreds of engaged, influential Angelenos gathered in the Arts District of downtown as Mindshare LA celebrated its 50th consecutive month of salons and workshops. The three day event featured fascinating speakers, musicians and performers gathered for a full day of inspiring talks, entertainment and art. The weekend unfolded as we collectively explored the theme “WHAT COMES NEXT?”… for ourselves, our culture and our planet.
