I can’t think of another education event that created such a supportive space for sharing ideas and collaborating to invent new ones. It makes other education conferences and festivals look old-fashioned. There were no panels, pre-rehearsed arguments or poorly-disguised pitches at Oppi - just opportunities to talk deeply and candidly with others who are equally passionate about education. Some times you need to stop, step back and breathe before you can see the bigger picture: Oppi provided the perfect space to do that and was also (whisper it) a great deal of fun.
