A collaborative community built just for spiritual innovators like you. As faith communities around the world begin to envision a post-pandemic society, we need to engage, connect, and unleash collaboration and creativity. Our desire is to provide a space to interact, discover new and diverse voices, build relationships, and grow resources to help encourage and launch projects.
* Engage. Soularize brings together like-minded people and new voices from the fringe. We’ll participate in crucial conversations, get feedback, and refine our ideas. Interact with workshop content and presenters ahead of time via our app.
* Connect. Our app enables you to connect with other attendees in multiple ways. Explore each other’s passions and projects; set up virtual meetups; have impromptu face-to-face conversations; instantly share contact information; participate in Soularize LIVE locally by attending a Village gathering.
* Unleash. At the heart of our community is collaboration and creativity. Move from passive observation to active contribution by using the virtual platform to participate in our unique Pitch Gallery featuring Start-Up Pitches, Workshops, and an Art Gallery.
This year’s theme is focused on Humane Spirituality. We are invited to explore the question, how might we reframe issues to inspire human dignity to all, through the pursuit and practice of empathy, equity, and inclusivity?
Soularize 2021 exists in a hybrid format that blends local and global engagement. Our app is your key to participating from anywhere in the world. During the months leading up to Soularize LIVE, you’ll have the opportunity to present ideas, ask questions, and collaborate with a diversity of innovators. Then in October, we’ll gather as a community.
Join Soularize LIVE in Southern California, watch with your local Village, or stream our content online from wherever you are.
Spiritual Innovators: Soularize is created by and for innovators and early adopters. We don’t need to force discovery of the new or different. It’s the essence of why we do what we do. It’s the animating force that drives our curiosity and enables us to fearlessly embrace the unknown.
We can be found among artist activists, community change-agents, business entrepreneurs, church leaders, visionary educators and even in the most unexpected vocations. We believe a better world is possible. Since 2001, Soularize has nurtured this unique audience, fostering relationships, hosting conversations around taboo topics, and awakening alternative movements. Join us!
