Futureshocks: systems

Starts at 7:30 pm

The power of networks, infrastructure and communities in our future cities

In partnership with DLA Piper and the Guardian, a panel of leading thinkers, writers and practitioners explore the transformative power of data, networks and infrastructure to our changing cities, from technological governance and citizenship to building resilient communities.

Systems is part of a series of talks, curated by writer and urbanist Adam Greenfield and Museum of London curator Lauren Parker that chart the role of technologies – from historical innovations to future speculations – in transforming and disrupting the city and the lived experience of our urban environments.

Futureshocks: systems is chaired by Francesca Panetta, executive editor of virtual reality at the Guardian.

Cost: £12
