The Future of Conference Hijacking

Former sailor’s retirement home Snug Harbor boasts many curious and historic features, including an archaic steam tunnel system. During the 2013 Future of Storytelling summit, Sextantworks orchestrated an unauthorized event on the fly. Mysterious handwritten invitations circulated during the day. The conference’s official band was lured off stage in the middle of their garden-party performance. The official distillery slipped us some pre-batched cocktails. And at dusk, a dozen guests snuck underground for a raucous dance party.
