    The Learning Remix
    The theme of the APF 2015 Annual Gathering will be the future of learning. The event will feature outstanding speakers, workshops, installations and play. We’ll explore the major forces that are aligned to disrupt the world of formal and informal learning over the coming decade. 

    Come join us as we deconstruct and remix these myriad challenges and opportunities and do what we do best; generate not just future scenarios, but ground-breaking concepts that could change the world.
