One Day. Countless Experiences. PINC returns December 6 at the Sarasota Opera House.
Sarasota, FL (November 27, 2018) – Known for showcasing exceptional international speakers, astounding artistic intermezzos, and culinary delights, DreamLarge announced the list of 12 speakers participating in PINC this December at the Sarasota Opera House.
Dubbed the most creative day of the year, PINC returns on December 6, 2018, introducing speakers who span the globe with topics ranging from how birds affect people to how harnessing the power of the sun can tell remarkable stories.
“PINC is the one day out of the year where our community can come together and witness a host of inspirational experiences,” said Anand Pallegar, founder of DreamLarge. “Reinvigorating our creativity is key to a more brighter future. What better time to gather some of the world’s most respected and forward-thinking innovators and creative thinkers who can enliven and inspire every one of us.”
PINC is People, Ideas, Nature, Creativity. The PINC experience aims to bring together thought leaders, innovators, creative thinkers, entrepreneurs, specialists, designers, artists, scientists, and people looking to stimulate their mind, heart, and brain and, in its 5th year, this PINC is stacked up to surpass the rest.
The 2018 PINC Speaker lineup includes Nashra Balagamwala, an experiential designer, Caroline Baron, an award-winning TV and film producer, Kathy Bryan, a human trafficking survivor, Anna Gadecka, co-founder of Bee Saving Paper, Sanford Greenberg, an inventor, entrepreneur, and advisor to presidents, Ulysses Jones, a puppet designer and performer, Reverend Richard Joyner, a pastor and farmer, John Marzluff, a bird brain researcher, Pashon Murray, co-founder of Detroit Dirt, Michael Papadakis, a sunlight artist, Christiaan Triebert, conflict researcher and photojournalist, and Mark Verge, an extreme balloon sculptor.
Presented by Ringling College of Art + Design, PINC works with sponsors to create an event which allows the community, from college students to CEOs, to meet, mingle, eat, and engage with its exceptional speakers. This approach elevates PINC from a traditional conference and allows the audience to be part of the entire experience.
“It is with great pride that Ringling College is the Presenting Partner for PINC as this event represents the same ideals of our institution: Innovation, Inspiration, and Creativity,” said Larry Thompson, President of Ringling College of Art + Design.
Founding partners for PINC include Gulf Coast Community Foundation, Michael Saunders & Company, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, IMG Academy, and ATLARGE.
Past speakers include Temple Grandin, professor of animal science at Colorado State University, Art Editor of The New Yorker Françoise Mouly, the first female NFL coach Jen Welter, the founder of vertical farming, the Director of Nickelodeon, NASA Astronaut Story Musgrave, and the doctor who performed the first hand transplant, to name a few.
