About this Event

Over 10 million people, from every continent on earth, have backed a Kickstarter project

Yancey Strickler is a writer, speaker and co-founder of Kickstarter and the pioneer of mass crowd-funding online.

Every artist, filmmaker, designer, developer, and creator on Kickstarter has complete creative control over their work — and the opportunity to share it with a vibrant community of backers.

Some Kickstarter projects come from influential artists like De La Soul or Marina Abramović. Most come from amazing creative people you probably haven’t heard of — from Grandma Pearl to indie filmmakers to the band down the street.

In THIS COULD BE OUR FUTURE, Yancey looks at how the relentless pursuit of financial gain, above-all-else, has become the new world order. We have become bystanders to a system that benefits the few, debilitates the rest, and paves the way to a bland, ‘samey’ culture. This is what our future looks like.

Research has proven that extrinsic values such as wealth and physical appearance do not provide long-term satisfaction, and we all know more iPhones and cheap Amazon goods are not making us happy. But history has shown change is slow. Thirty-years to be precise. So how do we build a values-based society by 2050?
