This is a different kind of "summit": an (un)Summit.


It is a rare gathering, the kind that evolves meaningfully based on who is in the room. We're inviting YOU.

This is a time of intertwining, of finding ways to be engaged in our shared growth and our collective strength.

Let's weave our community together.

Typically, summits are gatherings for people who hold traditional seats of power. They offer limited opportunities for community input and almost no co-creation.


A summit can also describe the highest level, the furthest you can go. This gathering isn’t a celebration of reaching an endpoint; we’re nowhere near finished with our work, and we have bigger dreams and ideas for what is to come.

WHY AN (UN)SUMMIT?

The best way to predict the future is to build it together

Why attend?

Why now?

OUR SHARED PURPOSE

We've changed our name, invested in many more Ventures, and embraced a collective leadership approach that promises to transform our impact. This remains a place where you can show up as your full unique self, where you can bring your bold ideas and take unconventional actions together.


We'll be bringing updates, insights, and big questions; we're ready to share where we've been and explore what's coming next, but we need your perspective, your experiences, and your wisdom.

Why Vancouver?

A PLACE OF RICH CULTURAL EXCHANGE

Vancouver is home to a vibrant and engaged Coralus Community. 32 Coralus Ventures are headquartered in British Columbia; it's a place where we have roots and also so much space to grow.


We have a highly engaged organizing group of community members who are able to support you in finding accommodations, places of interest, and in some cases - even host you themselves. It's a great way to deepen relationships.

Who is this for?

CALLING IN OUR COMMUNITY

The short answer is that the (un)Summit is for anyone in the global Coralus community. If you've ever been a Venture or an Activator, there is a place for you here.

  • has been looking for ways to build deeper relationships within the Coralus Community
  • hasn’t had a chance to meet other Activators and Ventures in-person
  • has big ideas about how we can do things differently, individually and collectively
  • is interested in being part of writing our collective story
  • is looking to collaborate and take meaningful steps to building a new world right now.

We particularly want to invite in anyone who:

Women and non-binary identifying guests who are new to Coralus and want to experience the community first-hand are also welcome to purchase a limited number of tickets on March 1st.

I was welcomed with open arms (literally - and hugs too!). I walked into the room to meet people I didn't know and immediately felt welcomed, like we were already friends. It's such a beautiful, safe and comfortable environment too, totally conducive to great conversations

COMMUNITY


Coralus hosts our events on a cost recovery and aims to charge the minimum price to cover the cost of the (un)Summit. Cost can still be a barrier to access for members of our community, so we encourage those who are able to choose the option that supports other participants.

The first two ticket options are available to anyone who has ever been an Activator or Venture at any time

Includes your ticket + a pay it forward contribution to support other attendees who might otherwise not be able to attend.

A small number of tickets are reserved for partial subsidy of the ticket cost. We recognize that various forms of systemic oppression can create financial barriers for people and we want to create accessible opportunities for our community to join.


Please apply and we'll be in touch to share next steps!
