since 2011, the nantucket project has hosted our signature four-day gathering under a tent on Nantucket Harbor.


Each year, a group of 600+ dynamic speakers and attendees gather in the round to enable thoughtful conversations, non-traditional interactions, and unexpected collaborations. The program is supplemented by a series of tnp films, which deliver concise and engaging content that efficiently energizes and informs the audience. 

Our gathering is meticulously designed for seamless integration throughout all four days. Each session builds upon the previous one to create a cohesive experience. The Nantucket Project favors the surprising and unexpected over the predictable and we always aim to engage the head & the heart in equal measure. 

Finally, we view stage and audience as one where our speakers also participate as audience members which helps to create a community that leaves energized and inspired to drive impact.
