About the speaker

Volunteers Take The Stage! CMVan volunteers are a group of diverse, inspiring, creatives that work in silence behind the scenes to bring this event to you every month. This month’s theme of Silence brings their voice to the front of the room.

Alexander Neff - Besides his role as a CMVan FieldTrip ambassador, Alex is a designer, copywriter, and illustrator who will address the role of gratitude in building community.

Christine Bissonnette - CMVan’s lead FieldTrip Coordinator, Christine is also a writer, poet, children’s entertainer, and voice teacher who will be exploring collaboration and how we can support each other’s voices.

Annelies Tjebbes - When not co-producing CMVan events and coordinating our volunteers, Annelies is an engineer, social innovation consultant, and educator who will be talking about her experiences with anxiety and panic attacks and how she used creativity to re-wire her brain and re-envision her life.

Additional details


Due to high demand for these FREE tickets, we use our waitlist for registration and will release tickets via lottery two weeks before the event. We find this approach to be the fairest and more equitable and appreciate you playing along. Don’t panic if you don’t get a ticket at first, we release additional tickets from the waitlist and priority is given to those who get stuck on the waitlist two or more months in a row. If you are issued a ticket but cannot attend after all, please release your ticket ASAP so someone on the waitlist can join us. Remaining applicants will remain on the waitlist and informed if tickets get released and offered access to FieldTrips when available (watch your inbox).

Please do not register if you aren’t sure you will attend. If you are on the list remember that means we have not only reserved you a seat, but arranged for your food and coffee, so be at the venue by 8:15 for breakfast! If you arrive later than 8:30 your tickets will likely be released to folks on the waitlist who are in line.
