The &Co Retreat is based on the concept of people coming together to connect and share. It is an experiment in collective conferencing and cooperative experience design. May 2017 marked the first annual &Co Retreat, which was brought to life by a group of amazing volunteers and took place in Donnelly River Village, near Bridgetown in south west WA.
The Retreat was a prototype for large scale collective festivals and conferences. Sprout Ventures was active in the support, ideation and operation of the retreat, and is excited to explore all the different ways community can come together and connect in meaningful ways.
