Driving the Human: 21 Visions for Eco-social Renewal Program

Hosted by Forecast at radialsystem in Berlin, Driving the Human: 21 Visions for Eco-social Renewal develops across dimensions: on the one hand, it manifests as an experienceable and memorable in-person experience; on the other, the event becomes a digital broadcast and offers an online platform for exchange. 

The event offers a variety of formats, creating various points of entry to the themes explored by each of the presented projects. In Berlin, three days of intense, multidimensional programming will offer immersive experiences and interactive installations; focused readings and embodied knowledge; riveting screenings and stimulating performances.

Book your tickets via this link.

For those who cannot join us in Berlin, Driving the Human: 21 Visions for Eco-social Renewal also proposes a digital broadcast – hosted here on the Driving the Human website.
