Join us for the September Moonshot Night to explore how the history and expertise of Themed Entertainment Design can contribute to the development of Transformative Experiences.
It’s well understood that experiences make us happier than things, and that humans are naturally altruistic. What are the opportunities in the marketplace for Transformative Experiences that not only strive to make the world a better place, but positively impact each individual participant as well?
"That's what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination and instill hope again, and again, and again.” - Walt Disney
