Allana Taranto, Ben Spear and Jon Lopkin have been working alongside one another and collaborating on project work for over a year. In addition to shooting wedding, portrait and boudoir photography (Ars Magna Studio, arsmagnastudio.com), Allana is an accomplished speaker on visual thinking. Ben has been a brand consultant for over ten years, and counts some of Boston’s most prestigious cultural institutions among his clients (Thinkside, thinkside.com). Jon owns a strategic graphic design boutique for forward thinking leaders (amusegrafik, amusegrafik.com). Their unique partnership has culminated in a project about the unique benefits that space-sharing confers on the passionate creative, called One Big Open.
This talk is their first engagement for the One Big Open initiative, which will culminate in a three-month-long pop-up coworking space. In it they’ll define the coworking movement and share their successes: expanding beyond your industry, fueling passion, producing programming, creating community and raising your profile. This is a new approach to business for a changed economy—learn how you can use it to grow professionally and spiritually.
