Event description

Description

Join Douglas Rushkoff's Team Human Podcast for its first London-based live broadcast event, with special guests Pat Cadigan and Rupert Sheldrake.

Autonomous technologies, runaway markets and weaponized media seem to have overturned civil society, paralyzing our ability to think constructively, connect meaningfully, or act purposefully. Being human is a team sport, and Douglas Rushkoff's Team Human Podcast and radio show has been the voice of human intervention in the machine.

Join the party, find the others, throw off the yoke of surveillance and manipulation and celebrate the quirky, anomalous behaviors and approaches that make real people so much more than robots, algorithms, or consumer profiles. This is where the conscious beats the automatic - an opportunity to redesign reality on our own terms.

Come find out what, if anything, makes people different than machines, and how we can fight back against the stultifying effects of digital capitalism run amok.

This is the first UK-based Team Human event and has been produced in partnership with Virtual Futures.
