Chocolate Fountain is a creative retreat and symposium that brings together talented individuals from diverse sectors of science, art and commerce in a unique environment of exchange. The symposium is held over the course of four days and three nights . This unique gathering aspires to inspire and stimulate its guests through conversation, collaboration and celebration. Each guest is encouraged to share whatever vision or project they believe in through presentations, workshops, performances, installations or simply conversation.

Chocolate Fountain was conceived in the Swiss Alpine town of Lenzerheide where an enthusiastic group of individuals like, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Nalden from Wetransfer, musician Nancy Whang, designer
A. Sauvage and Swiss Pop sensation Seven, gathered to share their experiences and witness the creative endeavors of others. Chocolate Fountain aims to build on the successful momentum of its first edition, this time, in Tepoztlán, Mexico. . Tucked between volcanoes a mere one hour South of Mexico City, this historical cultural epicenter will bring together lateral thinkers from around the world to meet and converse with some of Mexico’s finest artists and creative minds. This picturesque town that His Holiness the Dalai Lama appointed as a world peace location, is also known as being the mythical birthplace of Quetzalcoatl, the all-powerful serpent god of the Aztecs and it certainly vibrates with unexplainable and inexhaustible inspirational energy.

Creating meaningful value is at the core of Chocolate Fountain’s philosophy and therefore it is essential to us to make it an enriching experience for each group involved. Chocolate Fountain brings together three core groups in line with its vision: the invited international and Mexican artists, musicians, scientists, researchers, photogra- phers, architects, all philosophers in their own right; a number of selected paying guests who are interested in networking and collaborating with the invited participants; and in the spirit of bringing new ideas to and learning from Tepoztlán’s locals, Chocolate Fountain will provide the local community the opportunity to engage with the symposium through planned cross-cultural experiences.

THE

INVITED PARTICIPANTS

The artists are hosted in the Posada del Tepozteco, a breath-taking old manor house that has been renovated into a luxurious boutique hotel. The Posada is the main site for Chocolate Fountain’s activities where each one of the participating guests will have an allocated slot, in a carefully curated schedule of experiential activities, to share their craft, knowledge and talent.

THE PATRONS

Chocolate Fountain invited a handpicked group of paying guests, including: philanthropists; art collectors; creative agencies; foundations; strategists and interested individuals from around the world and Mexico that are keen to explore inspiration, build relationships with other creative people in the hope to also create possible collaborations with and for the invited participants. Each one of these individuals is a vital part to make the event possible through their patronage.

THE LOCAL COMMUNITY

Chocolate Fountain involved a selection of creators and thinkers from the local community to attend as participating guests. Various public events including music, visual art, film and educational presentations will be held throughout Tepoztlán.

During the three day gathering from 5 to 8 November, a schedule of thoughtfully curated activities will set the stage for quality networking in an intimate environment, powerful inspiration and unique experiences through various mediums shared by our guests. Creating a new way of thinking through acquiring an accumulation of valuable diverse knowledge in a relaxing and enjoyable setting.

CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN TEPOZTLAN 5 - 8 NOVEMBER 2015

“I appreciate being in the company of so many talented and dynamic people and I’m hoping that we keep in contact and work towards building the world that we need.” - Yasiin Bey a.k.a. Mos Def -

“Chocolate Fountain is the intimate version of TED with a better taste in music.” - Nalden, Wetransfer -

“In Lenzerheide, the inaugural Chocolate Fountain is a landmark event that importantly sets the bar high, connecting forward thinking and responsible individuals and communities of creativity.”- Dr. Koan Jeff Baysa -

“What an incredible, interesting and flavorful time. I am/was flattered/honored/psyched. It’s really a testament to the spirit of the conference that none of us knew who footed the bill and what those parties ultimately “wanted” from us. It’s just such a stark difference from the normal, totally corporate, “you scratch our back we scratch yours now hold this can of soda” sort of scene and that’s what makes it special. That and the people of course! “ - Elliot Aronow, Huffington Post -
