BRAVE NEW WORLD CONFERENCE

BRAVE NEW WORLD is an annual Art & Science conference for people who want to know what the future holds in store and how this will affect their work and life.

 

On Thursday and Friday 12 – 13 September 2024, the worlds of culture, philosophy, science, technology and storytelling will collide.

 

We want to discuss what ethical and societal impact new technologies could have on human life, before the innovations are introduced in society.

 

This conference is for people who want to go beyond their own field of interest, who want to network with others with innovative mindset.

The theme for this year's event will be The Future of Indifference.

In a world saturated with information and stimuli, why do certain subjects fail to evoke our concern? 
Why does indifference persist despite the pressing issues facing humanity? Can activism raise awareness among the indifferent or will it divide society to the point of apathy? Will new technology foster indifference or can it also be a powerful tool with the potential to awaken awareness? Can AI be indifferent? Do animals care about humanity?

 

Together with scientists, artists, thinkers and industry we will take a deep dive into the world of indifference.
