The conversations are back!

The conversations are back from their smoky summer hiatus!

We’ve put together a great conversation series for the fall. It’s built around the idea of change, and we’re running it in conjunction with 9e2. As most of you know, 9e2 was an art, science, and technology festival that we ran in October 2016. 9e2 is coming back in February 2018 as a smaller festival. This one will explore the idea that our society is going through tremendous and unprecedented change and engage the dynamics of living through that change.

(By the way, if you’re on the 9e2 mailing list, you’ve already received a note about the conversations. Regrets about the duplication. If you want to be on that list for future 9e2 announcements, let me know.)

We’re using the fall conversations as a way to focus the themes for February. 9e2 2018 will go deeply into learning and ideas, weaving art installations and performances together with workshops, conversations, presentations, and maker projects. The fall conversations will help to create an initial framework for that.

Here’s the list. You’ll be getting more detail closer to the actual dates.
