Do Wales. 10th Anniversary. June 28th-July 1st, 2018.
The DO Farm, Cardigan, west Wales
Fresh, local food
DO Wales is hosted on an old farm in Cardigan in West Wales. Far from everywhere. Far from normal. Far from perfect. But somehow magical moments happen here. We have no clue how. All we do is create a safe space.
The date has been set. And so has our intention:
To create an event that will surprise, delight and inspire you, like never before. To lead the world in terms of how an event can make you feel.
Once a year, we gather speakers and attendees on the edge of west Wales to create a village of ideas. The broadband is switched off. And people talk about the ideas they have just listened to. It's a place for optimism, wonder, and inspiration to bubble up.
It is a small event. Just 80 attendees and 24 speakers. But it is the intimate nature of it that gives it it's magic.
Chickens run around. People swim in rivers. Music plays long into the night. Great local food. Coffee made by the top baristas. Teas like you have never tasted before. And local beers brewed just down the road.
People leave us 3 days later. Things are different for them after that.
Do has been voted in the top ten ideas festivals by the Guardian. Not sure we are a festival. We certainly aren't a conference. In fact, after 10 years of doing it, we still have no idea how to describe the event. But, we do know this, we're all about ideas. And the people who attend tell us that it's the best thing they have ever been to.
As it's our 10th year, it is time to push on. To dial up the crazy. To dial up the optimism. And to dial up the humanness.
