Three playing cards stacked on top of each other. The top one says "The Inn: a remote inn, haunted by wicked problems"

While the start and end times each day will not change, all activity times are fluid/subject to change...because it’s an unconference.  The Living Agenda will evolve and change before and during the unconference. Check often for updates.
