We are honored to be a part of the 7th annual Coro Water & Sustainability Conference on Tuesday, October 20TH at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood, California.
We'll be on the response panel of the CORO Hackathon Presentation along with Lauren Bonn and Margaret Bruning.
“Civic Art and Society” How can art shape public opinion on water?
The Coro Hackathon is a civic adaptation of the modern technical hackathon model. With minds instead of computers and inquiry instead of coding, Coro Fellows explore and synthesize the logic of a given societal issue.

Coro was founded in San Francisco in 1942 by W. Donald Fletcher, an attorney, and Van Duyn Dodge, an investment counselor, to train young veterans in the leadership skills necessary to assure that our democratic system of government could more effectively meet the needs of its citizens.
Since 1947, when the first program was delivered, Coro has grown to include Coro Centers in six cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles (1957), St. Louis (1972), Kansas City (1975), New York (1980), and Pittsburgh (1999).
300-400 participants a year go through Coro programs nationwide. At least 10,000 program alumni are currently serving as leaders in local, regional and national/global businesses, non-profit organizations, governmental agencies and elected public office.
The four Centers, Programs and licensees, and an alumni service organization, are connected supported and leveraged as a system by Coro National, a 501(c) 3 governing body that serves as the national voice and partner for the regional centers and alumni participants, and works to build capacity for the system and enhance program quality standards and innovation.
Coro is a non-profit, non-partisan educational institute supported by foundations, corporations and individuals.
