Here at Prevail, we care deeply about the future. And a big part of caring about the future is caring about our collective images of the future, the questions that we ask about it, and the tools that we use. Which is why I’m proud to announce the EMERGE Event, at Arizona State University March 1st-3rd.
What is EMERGE? An unparalleled campus–wide event uniting artists, engineers, bio scientists, social scientists, story–tellers and designers to build, draw, write and rethink the future of the human species and the environments that we share.
Who will be there? Global leaders from industry and creative practice will join distinguished ASU faculty and talented students along with present a line-up of world class keynote speakers for the conference-closing Keynotes Session (March 3, open to the public with RSVP) including noted writers, designers and futurists such as Stewart Brand (The Whole Earth Discipline), Bruce Sterling (The Difference Engine, Beyond the Beyond), Sherry Turkle (Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other), Bruce Mau (Incomplete Manifesto for Growth, Massive Change Network), Neal Stephenson (Snow Crash, The Diamond Age, Reamde) and ASU President Michael Crow.
What will we be doing? MAKING THE FUTURE.
If you’re in the Phoenix area in early March, please come by. Particularly for the Digital Culture festival which will be open to the public on March 3rd.
