WOOP 2019

March 28

€395 – €495

About

Technology is not neutral. I see this on an everyday basis. Possibilities are huge, although what is possible is not leading to desirable outcomes. Let’s get this straight: At this pace, it has become harder and harder to gear towards the good direction. Where are we going? And where do we want to go?

Technology is never far from sight when it comes to discuss about the future. Flying cars, spatial tourism, cybernetics, transhumanism, artificial intelligence… Our collective imagination is fed by e-steroids coming from various utopians and sometimes worrying scenarios. It recreates many uniform visions of a techno-world we would want to take as our future. Nothing is yet written.

We have created WOOP to question those possible futures. We want to take some time to deliberately focus around one of the core concept that animates us: FREEDOM. Speakers will surely express disagreement. Taking freedom in the digital age as the main angle is an ambitious project. Needless to say, it will be a place of lively debate. It is a firm stance from our end. As Churchill expressed: “if two people agree on everything, one of them is unnecessary.” Come develop your own opinion. Join the debate.

Future deserve better horizon! Let’s talk about it.

We will be pleased to welcome you on the 28th March 2019.

Fabrice Croiseaux.
