  • Sea Island Creativity Conference

    Expand your horizons and stimulate your mind by engaging with extraordinary thinkers and innovators from the arts, sciences, and media during Sea Island's creativity weekend. The two-day program includes talks, Q&As, activities, and socializing with visionaries across many different fields. We expect this 2nd Annual event to quickly become a tradition.

    Creativity Conference Hosts:

    Ecologist Dr. Mark Moffett and his wife and frequent expedition partner, Melissa Wells, will serve as conference hosts. “Sea Island is a gorgeous spot surrounded by nature (golden marsh lands, protected oyster beds, and sea turtles), with amenities for a rejuvenating and stimulating weekend. We were impressed with our experience at Sea Island and jumped at the chance to help create a conference of like-minded creatives.”
