First-Ever Catalyst Week Downtown

As part of the Downtown Speakers Series, Downtown Project is hosting the first-ever Catalyst Week featuring, among others, Batman Executive Producer, Michael Uslan; and TED Prize winner, Co-founder of Architecture for Humanity, Cameron Sinclair.

Through a series of 18 talks, Catalyst Week will engage the Downtown Las Vegas community and connect it with some of our country’s thought leaders. Speakers come from a variety of fields including social entrepreneurship, corporate brand management, nonprofits, tech, journalism, and more.

Beginning in early 2013, Catalyst Week will be a recurring event which will take place during the fourth week of each month. Stay tuned for more details.
