Feed Your Creative Brain mOtion 2015 | santa fe | june 12-14



To explore innovative ideas, to seek out creative minds and new inspirations, to boldly go where no creative has gone before!

Now in it’s 9th year, motion is one of North America’s leading innovative and uniquely intimate events for creatives. Influential talent working in the motion picture and broadcast industries take the stage to share unique concepts and innovative ideas in 18-minute TED talk style presentations designed to revitalize the creative muse and // feed your creative brain //.

From Thursday night until late Sunday evening, treat yourself to thought-provoking ideas, extraordinary conversations, innovative business concepts, and a fresh perspective on creativity – all set in Santa Fe – a city rich in creativity, art and culture.

2015 marks motion's first year as a creative retreat. We believe there’s no better place to celebrate creativity than Santa Fe - “the city different“. Located 7200 feet above sea level at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, you’ll enjoy the same blue skies and crystalline quality of light that inspired the 20th Century American painter, Georgia O’Keeffe. With highs in the upper 70s and low 80s, it’s the perfect time of year to enjoy this unique retreat atmosphere.
