The Learning Gypsies

They are a family from New York obsessed with discovering the best environment for kids to learn and develop the skills they will need in a changing and renewed society. Their inspiration comes from being exposed to the edge of innovation through their daily work. Because of this they know that in about 10 years 75% of all jobs will be done by robots and algorithms and that 25% of all careers will be those needed to navigate that new reality.

So they are traveling the world for 1 year, with their kids to explore and document what they learn. The kids are being homeschooled and that is also part of the learning experience.

They are the Learning Gypsies, a family with a wide universe to conquer!

The Learning Gypsies is a project created by New York based Hazel Swayne and Iñaki Escudero, along with their 3 kids and Hazel’s mom Julia Leturia. Their goal is to find opportunities to improve the way kids learn in the 21st century, and to empower parents to unlock their kids’ potential.

They are traveling around the world looking for answers and for the last 9 months have met with kids and parents, visited countless schools, gotten to know homeschool communities and interviewed education innovators, principals, teachers, psychologists, policy makers and learning experts. As part of their new digital nomad life they are worldschooling their two daughters Alani (11) and Amaia (8), and their son Iker (6).

After spending almost 20 years working as creatives and strategists in traditional and digital advertising agencies, Hazel and Iñaki switched their efforts to help organizations and professionals thrive in a world of change and uncertainty.

Both avid learners, Hazel teaches Zumba, and designs and facilitates digital transformation programs for Hyper Island, and Iñaki coaches executives on learning and habit building.

They live in Brooklyn, Sao Paulo, Austin, Lima, Madrid.

Creative Summit is blend of conference, workshop, party and some secret ingredients. Our first event in 2007 is older than a lot of the ideas, innovations and technology that we usually share talks on and it all takes place under the midnight sun in the north of Sweden.


We believe that bringing people together is important for sharing knowledge, inspiration and ideas and that by creating environments where people can meet, regardless of industry or background, is important.


Creative Summit is open for those interested in new ideas, technology, creativity and innovation. Each year we bring a broad range of speakers to share thier stories, dreams, success and failure.



We are extremely proud of our partners and the network that has been built since the first Creative Summit event took place in 2007. And we're always looking for new partners to work with, so if you have an interesting idea for a Creative Summit event or you'd like to learn more about how you can become a partner, please contact us.
