01: Artistry of Progress: Creativity as Catalyst
2:00 pm - 2:40 pm
These are some of the provocative questions we'll be asking: Make it fair - should men have it all? How might you avoid catching prickly emotions from other people? How does the water you flush become the water you drink? What might the Attention Economy reciprocating mean for you? Are solar panels worth it?

Live dialogue: What is your attention worth?
2:40 pm - 3:20 pm
We'll bilocate to a photo op in a beautiful fall Vailscape. You can choose to engage directly with Patty Klauer about your valuable attention. Or another Vail hotspot to hangout in engaging in the art of considering these ideas with others who have also just been inspired by these curated Talks.

02: Artistry of Persistence...GRIT it like you delight in it
3:20 pm - 4:00 pm
Celebrate how grit activates change. Enjoy a bit of beauty with Flowers. These are the questions we'll be asking... Are we the last generation -- or the first sustainable one? Is the US Headed for civil war? What's happening to Earth's core? What makes a good college?
