The Participatory Revolution #TakePart13 @ Vivid Sydney

I had the supreme pleasure of attending The Participatory Revolution, created by Michelle Williams @MiA_Wills, Founder & CEO of Ideaction.

“The vast majority of Australian’s are now online. They are informed, creative, breaking down hierarchies, building communities and movements. They are demanding more of products, services and public figures.”
