  • Overview

    The most meaningful approach to storytelling is interaction with the people who are the stories: current, living, creators of new ideas & developers of the latest innovations. Through engagement with the “who behind the what,” the stories come alive & create an emotional impact.

    Our annual ciWeek (Celebrate! Innovation Week) gives students & the community opportunities to interact with people (some famous, all inspired) who have dreamed, created & accomplished. During this thought-provoking & interactive week, students listen, absorb & engage without the stress of the regular class routine. Generous sponsors make the event free & open to the public.

    ciWeek is a local-facing conference with world-class presenters, making it a unique combination of a university lecture series, Ted Talks, and SXSW. Unlike other large conferences, each talk is followed by a speaker meet-and-greet where attendees can converse with the speakers and collect signatures.

    DMACC students and the public alike can get a front row seat to ciWeek for free. The 300 seats directly in front of the stage are first come, first served, so it’s recommended to arrive early. Overflow seating behind the stage accommodates 150 additional attendees.
