The format

RxC 2021 is a maximally participatory and attendee-led Open Space unConference. It has no keynotes or panels, so it’s about learning and getting stuff done!

The agenda will be created live by attendees present at the opening circle.

Through dozens of sessions you will have plenty of chances to present your ideas, ask questions, engage in challenging dialog, and make new professional connections. The Open Space unConference format is perfect for a rapidly moving field where the organizing team cannot predetermine what needs to be discussed.

Big ideas, concrete partnerships, and meaningful relationships emerge from Open Space events at a higher rate than conventional conferences. We are excited about Open Space as a path toward solidifying and growing communities of common purpose.

Who will be there

The Denver event will convene key local communities and leaders building and supporting open source software and democratically-minded blockchain civic innovation; Colorado government leaders, and adjacent civic society leaders; Platform cooperativism leaders / social entrepreneurs / activists and organizers, among many others.

In the event of increased COVID-19 restrictions for in-person gatherings, we will move the physical meeting(s) online.

Additional programming


In addition to the in-person and online events, RadicalxChange is putting together RxC TV, a unique and never before seen 3-part program that will be streamed LIVE the day before each Open Space unConference and thematically relate to the succeeding event, to inspire and learn.

Broadcasts will be on December 3rd, 9th, and 16th corresponding to their respective time zones.
