DARK FUTURES 6 (#DF6) (Paid Event)
*** TICKETS RELEASED 5TH NOV *** Buy your tickets and see the full line up now - DARK FUTURES is brought to you by Nikolas Badminton, Futurist, and the team that brought you the Cyborg Camp YVR, From Now: Humanity with Technology, and PRODUCT events. It's been five great years and this is the sixth edition of the event. Society goes about their daily routine oblivious to the psychological, physiological, macroeconomic and technological forces at work. Are we sleepwalking? Can we wake up to what is happening and affect it? Do we even have a choice? Many conferences talk about the incredible possibilities that are delivered by innovations, this conference speaks about the hidden systems that affect our daily lives (whether we are aware of it or not). 2018 is darker than ever and we are going deeper... Speakers - Vince Froom - DARK MORALITY - Alexandra Moxin - DARK BIG DATA - Meena Sandhu - DARK FERTILITY - Kristy O’Leary - DARK IMPACT - Ryan Betts** - DARK CITIES II: DENSE(R) - Nikolas Badminton - DARK SUPPLY **Note: Ryan was a speaker at the first DARK FUTURES where he predicted the housing chaos of Vancouver.
