This free panel discussion, part of the Brighton Digital Festival 2016, is for anyone interested in how society and digital technology can shape each other for the common good.
In this event, we want to re-enchant the digital. We’ll reconnect with the Utopian spirit of early pioneers, and discuss aspirations and activities today for a sustainable, democratic, weightless, and liberating digital society. A panel of writers and researchers will each give their view on how we can become re-enchanted with digital technologies, and there’ll be a chance to discuss and continue the debate afterwards over a drink.
