Momentum is an American passion – moving, achieving, building, developing. We prize starting new things – whether they are social movements, technological developments, design achievements or political efforts. Once started, how are they sustained?

  • NEW IDEAS How does a new idea occur and what causes it to take off?
  • SUCCESS OR FAILURE Why do some issues develop momentum while others do not?
  • BUILDING MOMENTUM Does momentum grow when one technology builds on another?
  • MARKETING AND ADVERTISING How do the arts, marketing and/or advertising create and take advantage of momentum?

The 2016 theme was suggested by Devyn Bullock Cannon from more than 100 community suggestions.
