About the Event

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” -George Bernard Shaw

A Day of Unreasonable Conversation is a new annual gathering that connects content creators with leading changemakers to unlock progress through the power of stories. This inaugural convening will connect leading thinkers and frontline activists with top TV writers, showrunners, and producers to challenge how they conceptualize future narratives and storylines. This event will be held on March 25, 2019 in Los Angeles.
