Last week, Summit at Sea hosted almost 3,000 entrepreneurs, activists, artists, entertainers, athletes and other ridiculously smart and successful people on a trip from Miami to Nassau and back. The ship served as a think tank detached from the distractions of the internet, where collaborators ranging from Black Lives Matter cofounder Patrisse Cullors, director Quentin Tarantino, musician Kendrick Lamar, social activist Erin Brockovich and many more could lecture, participate in panels, and, in the case of international jam bands like Thievery Corporation, put on one hell of a show.
Black Eyed Peas MC will.i.am kicked off the presentations on Wednesday with a discussion alongside Summit co-founder Jeff Rosenthal about forming a “Do Party”—to actively engage communities outside of entertainment; fitting words as the conference launched shortly after the election.
Participants (90% of the attendees are invited) had the option to engage in tracks as diverse as storytelling, athletic performance, diet, history, music and Asian business. The conference curated workshops and lectures from tech executives including Google Chairman Eric Schmidt and private equity leader Gary Vaynerchuk.
Paste photographer Amy Harris captured the eclectic experience, photographing Olympians, tech giants, comedians and musicians (sleep, optional).
