Future Perfect: A Postcapitalist Adventure
Welcome to Tomorrowland. It might feel like home. Technology shapes society, and vice versa. The coming wave of AI-driven automation will profoundly alter our lives— but how? The future of work, free speech, the environment, social justice: what do these things have to do with technology, and how will the policy decisions we make around them today shape our tomorrow? Perhaps more crucially, do we even know what we want that tomorrow to look like? These are big questions, but Free Machine believes that each of us have a part to play in answering them. We invite you to join us to play Future Perfect: A Postcapitalist Adventure: a choose-your-own-adventure game that explores our collective tomorrow and how we get there. At Future Perfect: A Postcapitalist Adventure, you’ll take on the role of a neighborhood council member of an imagined society, debating critical issues with your neighbors before casting your vote. What does the future hold? It’s up to you! Future Perfect: A Postcapitalist Adventure at Manny's is co-presented by Institute for the Future. Please note: while tickets are listed at $5, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Ping us at team[at]freemachine[dot]org for a reservation. About Free Machine Free Machine is an LA-based collective of artists, designers, urban planners, and policy wonks. By using the tools of culture to shift the conversation around tech and society, we aim to shape a hi-tech future that is equitable, sustainable, and abundant. This strategy is intended to register in the domain of public policy, ultimately resulting in democratic oversight and public ownership of technology. Future Perfect is our first program and aims to develop a new form of civic engagement that educates, engages, and organizes communities around actionable strategies for equitable tech and a sustainable future on this planet. Previously, we've hosted Future Perfect at the Ace Hotel in DTLA and the Cucalorus Festival in Wilmington, NC. We're growing this program's reach in 2019 and welcome you to join the cohort of Future Perfect alumni who are hustling to create a better tomorrow to be shared by all.
