THE NANTUCKET PROJECT
The edge of the world is the birthplace of change
We began with this simple vision:
To bring together a select group of eminent and accomplished visionaries, thinkers, innovators and performers to one of the most storied places in the United States. To invite them to share what’s foremost on their considerable minds. And to see what happens.
The result, and the impact, have been nothing short of stunning.
Today, The Nantucket Project is an event like no other, in a place like no other. While it has clearly taken its place among the world’s elite conferences and forums, The Nantucket Project goes beyond simply the presentation of compelling thoughts.
Our intent is to create a powerful distillation of ideas that will spark meaningful conversation and lead to meaningful change. Some may consider this ambitious. We agree. But we also consider it essential.
With that in mind, our theme for 2013 is Seek the truth. Endure the consequences. What the heck does that mean?
It means that for us to move forward as a country and as a civilized planet we must first determine, with an honest and unflinching eye, the truth or the reality of our situation. The process for doing so is demanding, in part because the truth is so often elusive and difficult to discern. Especially now, when the reality we’re presented through the media is filtered and colored, often with significant bias.
Then, after determining the truth, we must endure its consequences. In other words, we must follow the truth and let it lead us to wherever it must – no matter how controversial, uncomfortable or politically incorrect those conclusions might be. As Gloria Steinem so colorfully put it: The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.
So we invite you to attend the 2013 Nantucket Project and to participate as we attempt to change the consequences. The future is coming – and given the accelerated rate at which everything is changing, it’s coming faster than ever. Now is the time to both seek the truth and endure the consequences. So join us. The 2013 Nantucket Project will not just be stimulating and enlightening. It will be work. It will be worth it.
