Case Study

For the 6th year, Kingdom of Mind returned to Claremont McKenna College to produce the annual end-of-year concert for the students of the Claremont Colleges. Each year, the event is optimized by implementing lessons learned from previous iterations, student feedback, and the requirements of campus stakeholders. The voice of the students is a guiding force for this event to engineer an experience that will resonate with the community.

Seen as an opportunity for the student body to come together for a final hurrah, Pirate Palooza is the last event of the school year. Representatives from the student government, Dean of Students Office, and university facilities team were all involved in the project development and execution. Kingdom of Mind project managed the event, advocating for the requirements of each of these groups and finding budgetary, resource, safety, and logistical solutions that left all feeling understood while delivering a seamless event.

As with all of Kingdom of Mind's university shows, the team approached Pirate Palooza with the perspective that as important as the final event production deliverable is the learning experience the students have along the way in exploring the field of event production. With this, the KOM worked collaboratively with student organizers to make decisions together deliver the best event experience for the campus community.
