Questions & Answers

Here are answers to some questions you may have about Culture Camp 2021. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please Contact Us to send us your question and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Yes. We will be using the Zoom platform and you’ll need to be on Zoom to participate. We will provide more details and tips about connecting prior to the event.
Not exactly! Culture is constantly evolving, and Grant is always studying what’s new, how people are changing and how we can effectively work with culture. (And with COVID affecting the whole world, lots has changed!) But please note, the first part of Day One, ‘What is Culture?’ is a similar foundation to past Culture Camps, but then it’s a mix of new material and updates on essentials. So if we’ve had the pleasure of having you join us before, we guarantee and new experience that builds nicely on the foundation you bring to this event.
Yes, we can arrange this for you. We request you contact us in advance and provide your substitute’s details so we can coordinate final event details and directions for connecting to the event.
We’re happy to refund your ticket up to seven days before the Culture Camp event minus a $50 processing fee.
Yes, the more the merrier! We’re happy to discuss this with you. We believe Culture Camp is a great shared learning experience for a team; the more people who know how to master culture, the better!
We are about to launch Culture Camp Community as a place for Culture Camp attendees to stay connected to one another and to Grant and vice versa! A ticket to any Culture Camp entitles you to join the site, join conversations, weigh in on interesting topics and stay on top of your culture game.
Yes. Student tickets are discounted by 20% and require a current student ID. Please contact us to make arrangements.
Our goal is to bring the magic of the in-person event to the virtual setting. We chose to work with a wonderful production company to leverage their expertise in bringing the magic! To be more specific, we are offering opportunities to meet and discuss content in small groups; we have interactive sessions to apply culture tools; and we are planning an after event virtual meet and greet! We will provide these details closer to the event.
We see culture as the dark matter of capitalism. It runs through every part of life but often we don’t know how to understand or tap into it. The best brands and companies know how to work with culture to stay relevant and in touch with consumers. Culture Camp will help you understand what culture is, teach you how to leverage this knowledge and apply it to the brands and businesses you’re a part of. Culture Camp goes beyond the trends of the day into the deeper drivers, complexities and possibilities that are a part of our dynamic world. If knowledge is power, knowledge of culture is a competitive edge.
We don’t have plans at this time for making the presentations themselves available after the Culture Camp takes place. But we’re working on some content cheat sheets to make it easy to take notes and follow along.
Not really! Just bring an open mind and your willingness to participate! We’ve always been humbled by the smart, enthusiastic people who have come to Culture Camp and we’re looking forward to counting you among those! But be on the lookout…Grant may send a quick assignment beforehand to get things going.
Yes! We love to do that! We’ve given private, bespoke Culture Camps since 2018 and love the opportunity to design an event that supports your unique business objectives.
Yes, that’s our plan! We find these help participants to track with the volume of ideas that will come your way.
Hate to say it, but we’re not offering half tickets. If you’ve ever attended a Culture Camp, you know there’s a lot of information to take in and the content builds over the course of the event. This Culture Camp is a single offering, split over two days and we made the decision to format it this way for several reasons: to not tie anyone to their computer screen for an entire day; to allow participants to join from other time zones (without it being too late or too early in their time zone); and to give time for the content to settle in between Days One and Two. Day Two builds upon the foundation from Day One and Day One alone will leave you wanting more!
Yes, we’d love to meet you and keep you informed of other events. You can use the CONTACT US button to provide us your details.
We certainly hope to! We were a little slow to resume Culture Camps because we were hoping to see you in person in 2020. We too love the energy and enthusiasm of the face to face gathering. So we will keep an eye on the world and hope to offer the chance to see you in person again soon (with the option of joining virtually)!
Grant is working on another event for Culture Camp called Culture+Design and we hope to offer it in the autumn of 2021. More on that as it evolves!
Love to! Grant McCracken literally wrote the book on ethnographic research. The Long Interview is often used in university anthropology courses about ethnographic research. Ethno Camp is offered to teams looking to deepen their knowledge of the relationship between products and services and core consumers. The workshop is a hands-on session that goes beyond the art of the interview and explores the cultural insights and critical meanings beneath the conversations. Please contact us for more information.

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us.

Testimonials about Culture Camp

What others say about Culture Camp

““I left Culture Camp feeling invigorated and inspired, armed with new ways of thinking.”

Alice Eldridge

“I left Culture Camp feeling invigorated and inspired, armed with new ways of thinking into and about my everyday structures and fell in love with my “why” at work all over again. You and your team provided an experience that I will revisit often, fondly and with gratitude.”

Alice Eldridge

“Thank you for such an interesting day! I really admire your ability to communicate complex thoughts in such a way that you succeed in making your audience feel like they’re smart and able to participate in the cascade and flow - tsunami really - of ideas.”

Thomas Ball

“I really enjoyed the CCO bootcamp this weekend – was totally worth the trip from Amsterdam. better than the typical planner conference where the speaker takes an hour to recap their book – I really appreciated that you gave us information that was NOT in the book that I felt I can use in my work.”

Heather LeFevre

“The Bootcamp was a marvelous day. Amazing to be in a room full of so many folks yearning to bring a deeper kind of cultural thinking to their brands, agencies, corporations, endeavors. And the content was a brilliant mix of deep thinking and accessible content, slow and fast culture and more. It was inspirational to say the least. My poor wife had to deal with me going on about it at length. Despite this, she’s gunning to go next time.”

Steve Nasi

“Just to thank you for an outstanding day. I first started reading your blog about six years back, I guess. I then ‘lapsed’ for some time, but now – like the prodigal son – I am back big time. I particularly like your enthusiasm for generalists, where I also place myself. Your brilliantly funny use of metaphor and simile also made the day great fun – if I have any complaint about May 28, it was that I wanted more of you and less of everyone else (how very uncharitable of me).”

Roger Tredre

“Just a quick note to say thanks for a enlightening workshop on Friday at Dare London. Despite the need to accelerate covering topics in the afternoon session, which I suppose reflects the high level of engagement from the morning, you introduced me to several new big ideas and concepts throughout the session. Culture is so much more than just trend spotting and with many angles, levels and implications which I had previously not considered.”

Lee Sankey

“The CCO London Bootcamp was fantastic. Great for those who need a day of inspiration, and like the book, a hypodermic needle of insight. Both invaluable and game-changing.”

Collyn Ahart

“It was an awesome day - some very good conversations have sparked around my office and some good thinking is come gout of it! Appreciated your energy and perspective.”

Quinn Hutchings

“I found it invaluable and have since discussed the issue of how we stay on top of culture as planners, and react to shifts we see, with my department.”

Tom Callard
