Activate will bring the sharpest digital minds from political and advocacy campaigns, creative agencies, and causes for four days of hard-skills training in digital tactics and leadership.

Gain bold clarity on how to intelligently activate your organization from the inside, and crack the code to engaging your target audience to win campaigns, raise money, and hit your goals.

Why Activate?

There are enough conferences to talk about the problems we need to solve, but there aren’t a lot of places to get in a room and learn how to use the tools to win.

Activate is all about practical training. Selecting the right combination of tools, designing and executing a strategy to win.

Hollyhock is working to make sure our conferences and events are accessible and valuable to diverse communities. We welcome and encourage applicants who will bring diversity to Activate, including but not limited to diversity of gender, race, ability, sexual orientation and class.

We know that important, exciting and innovative digital work is happening on the margins. At Activate, we will hold up, support, and provide a platform for / share this work.
