Catalyst Conversations is a series of casual discussions – some playful, some serious, but all engaging and thought-provoking – in A&E’s Catalyst Innovation Lab, a “living room for the arts” on the ground floor of the Centene Center for the Arts.

Each conversation features people who are using their talents and unique experiences to inspire, connect and shape new perspectives. Food, drink and networking is part of each discussion.
