A mind that is stretched by a new experience
can never go back to its old dimensions
— Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.


Inspiration Tours

We curate and lead immersive inspiration tours to open up new worlds of possibility for you and your organization. We’ve worked with a wide range of partners in both the public and private sectors, and are an especially good match for organizations in need of fresh eyes and energy. Perfect scenarios include when you are: starting a rebrand, going through organizational changes, having a retreat, working on a strategic plans or in need of creative vision around design and research projects. It is also an excellent option for creative professional development.

The planning for each immersion begins with a theme rooted in an idea, challenge, or trend that partners bring us. Next, we craft an experience to explore these concepts first hand, visiting sites that are unexpected and can spark powerful new ideas. We have worked on a wide range of themes from transformation beauty, wellbeing, the future of work, and community building. To enhance and extend the experience, we create inspiration kits, and pre-inspiration activities - we use our library of tools as a starting point to curate readings, activities, and ephemera. After being in the field, we conduct a debrief session in order to transform the experiences into actionable ideas for your context.

The Field Experience team arranges the tours and leads you through them. They last anywhere from a half day to a full week and have impact and influence over a long period of time. Get in touch with us to see if your organization is a good fit for a tour, and for an estimate of prices. We do a limited number of tours each year to ensure quality, rigor, and delight.
