The Time is HERE!

Dear creatives, poets, visionaries, bloggers, speakers, entrepreneurs, thinkers and tinkerers,

re:publica Detroit is taking place this week and we hope you are just as excited as we are!

#rpDetroit offers a full diversity of speakers, subject matters, perspectives and formats thanks to the many inspiring submissions from the Call for Participation and the support of our amazing co-curators.

We invite you to explore the topic of ACCESS across three tracks: “arts & culture”, “work & new economy” and “mobility & urban space”. We want to raise discussions on complex issues in order to challenge ourselves and ask questions on who receives access to creative expression, economic opportunity and urban mobility in an age of digitalization. Look forward to sessions covering “Surveillance in the Urban Space”, a techno choreopoem set in the year 3071, discussions around Water as a Human Right and talks on the future of mobility. Speakers include Monica Lewis-Patrick, Ingrid LaFleur, Armen Avanessian, Janice Gates, Katie Hearn, Lauren Hood, Tiff Massey, Saskia Sassen, Hossein Derakhshan, Devita Davison, Mark de la Vergne, Katie Hearn, Piper Carter and many more.

Registration is free, and to keep you up to date, we will be reporting via our social media channels on twitter and facebook! Doors open at 10am on both days, Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to two exciting days full of creative ideas, open minds and intense discussions. Enjoy the conference, and make sure to join our evening program including a live performance by Jessica Care Moore, and the closing party at Electric Studio on Saturday night!
