We are excited to lead our 2018 announcements with female, transgender, and non-binary innovators engaged in designing the future through technology and creative expression.
Chelsea Manning will take part in a keynote conversation diving into how technology enables radical disruption in the personal and political spheres, while this year's FutureThoughtFutureSound program will include performances from LCD Soundsystem synth experimentalist Gavin Rayna Russom, gender ambiguous theremin virtuoso Armen Ra, hyperkinetic pop maven SOPHIE, Kuwaiti conceptual artist Fatima Al Qadiri, Afrofuturist DJ Maliibu Miitch, and the US debut of revered Japanese multi-instrumentalist Midori Takada. These artists and more will lead performances by night and workshops and conversations by day.
