Spring SFAI140


Join us for our Spring 2016 SFAI140! We are proud to present a remarkable evening, led by a compelling group of new presenters.

SFAI140 is an event unlike any other. 1 evening, 20 inspiring talks, 140 seconds each. With twenty speakers in one evening, the energy and ideas shared are electric. From celebrated local architects, to visiting journalists from the UK, SFAI140 presenters distill their work, values, mission, & organizations into their essential form: 7 slides delivered in 140 seconds. The results, times 20, are remarkable.

Come make connections, witness incredible work, and leave inspired. Our March 23 presenters include Jen Sincero, NY Times bestselling author & success coach, Erika Harrsch, an interdisciplinary artist from Mexico City whose work has been shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and Israel Haros Lopez, a local activist, educator, poet, and artist.

We asked ourselves: instead of having lengthy, monographic talks by one or two individuals, could we offer just a taste to inspire further, more in-depth conversations? While the format for SFAI 140 may seem quick, one hundred and forty seconds can actually be a profound amount of time. In 140 seconds, one can create a tremendous impact and drive change. The Arab Spring came about as a result of people expressing their passions and frustrations in 140 characters, and President Lincoln spoke his 272-word Gettysburg Address in a little under 140 seconds. As SFAI 140 reveals, time doesn’t limit seminal ideas and their impact.
