8:30pm - 10pm / Talks & Prizes
THEME: The Importance of PLAY!

The Power of Play!
Rahla Kahn & Richard Rossner / Founders, The Power of Play

Richard and Rahla will explore the emotional and physical benefits of a life full of laughter, fun, imagination and meaning. This experiential session draws on scientific research, as well as more than 30 years of in-the-field work with clients and patients. Participants will get a taste of Adaptive Applied Improvisation, while learning simple and effective tools to anchor their experience. We'll identify the profound importance of fun as a counter-balance to daily stressors in life. The Power of Play is an approach where playing with a purpose is the key to radical aliveness.

Richard Rossner and Rahla Kahn served as original members of The Groundlings, Los Angeles’ premier improvisational theater company. They met, fell in love and began to improvise a life together where laughter was their aphrodisiac. By a twist of fate, Rahla began to witness first hand the healing power of laughter. Richard, a writer for television, soon joined her creative endeavors to help her develop their own entrepreneurial endeavor, The Power of Play which has garnered ground-breaking results with their psychoneuroimmunology model. They are currently on staff at the Simonton Cancer Center, and they conduct workshops for major corporations, hospitals and non-profits, as well as programs for military veterans.

Playing and Storytelling in Physical Space
David Cobb / Sr. Creative Director, Thinkwell Group

Audience engagement in entertainment is different than it was 20 years ago. With the rapid advancements in technology allowing for sky’s-the-limit ideas, location-based entertainment, theme parks, museums, and pop-up events are becoming increasingly interactive. David Cobb will showcase current cutting edge examples of the whimsical and wildly creative ways this unique industry engages guests in play through physical environments and immersive storytelling, as well as the future of location-based entertainment.

As Senior Creative Director at Thinkwell Group, David has served on several notable projects including the Monkey Kingdom Theme Park in Huairou, China as well as Warner Bros. Theme Park in Abu Dhabi; he has also overseen dozens of other Thinkwell concepts for theme parks, attractions & museum experiences around the globe, as well as the development of new animated shows for Disney XD. Previously a Creative Director for Universal Studios theme parks, David was responsible for the creative development and production of one of the first groundbreaking interactive ride attractions, Men in Black: Alien Attack at Universal Studios Florida.

The Magic of 4th Dimensional Play
Brian Mullins / CEO, Daqri

Time and again an idea conceived by science fiction is later realized by scientific innovators, from Jules Verne’s detailed descriptions of spacecraft to H.G. Wells’ concept of the laser. Thanks to its obvious utility and incredible capacity for instantaneous, clear communication, augmented reality is no exception. AR has been imagined a thousand times in fiction because of its unparalleled potential in applications ranging from industrial and commercial projects, to education, to creative storytelling, to countless other uses in everyday life.

Brian is a visionary and pioneer in the field of augmented reality. He
studied engineering at the US Merchant Marine Academy, after which he helped to develop systems that employed some of the earliest vision based mixed reality technologies while working in the field of simulation at the U.S. Department of Transportation, and later at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command. He is founder and CEO of Los Angeles-based daqri, creator of enterprise class augmented reality technologies and solutions.

.

Mindshare's ballooning popularity is emblematic of generation steeped in chaos and an unabashed need for personal fulfillment. If you ever come to LA, come to Mindshare.
-- Fast Company

A forum for human technology in its most literal form - shared knowledge. Fueled by fancy pastries, an exceptionally well-stocked open bar and a room abuzz with stylish people.
-- The LA Times

If you haven't been to a Mindshare LA event, you haven't seen Angelenos at their eclectic best.
-- FlavorPill

A forward-thinking cultural salon. New ideas flow as liberally as the alcohol.
-- Brand X

This is what it would be like if the internet jumped out of the box and grabbed your arm for a trip into Alice's Wonderland of ideas and madmen.
-- KCET Online
