about

the nantucket project

TNP’s signature gathering takes place annually on Nantucket and features marquee presenters – thought leaders, change makers and performers – under a spacious tent by the sea. 

The four-day event begins with Threshold Thursday, a day-long deep dive for mind, body and spirit, and continues with engaging conversations on and off our stage. 

Evening dinners and parties, plus morning activities such as cycling, a trail run, yoga and sport fishing, round out the experience.

TNP’s next gathering will be our ninth. You can learn more about tnp9 and register here.
