INEXPERT 2018 - Mat Hayes

Inexpert 2018 was a social experiment disguised as a conference. It took place on Friday May 11th 2018. A not-for-profit gathering that celebrated the power of inexpertise and not knowing.

In a world pre-disposed to speaker events where we are invited to listen to those with knowledge and answers, Inexpert asked what would happen if we intentionally set out to do the opposite. To explore what happens when we gather together to listen to speakers giving talks they’ve never given before, on subjects that they have a mighty curiosity about but no expertise in. Think the opposite of TED where the audience leave with more questions than answers, possibly knowing less than when they arrived. This page is a scrapbook of what happened and will never happen again.
