Future Cities Forum

Smart Leaders for Smart Cities
February 23rd and 24th, 2018

In February 2018, Artengine and Impact Hub Ottawa are bringing together emerging young leaders from the technology, social impact, and creative sectors to explore and examine possible futures for our cities.

The Forum will kick off with an evening of three keynote talks by urban designer Ken Greenberg, science-fiction writer and futurist Madeline Ashby, and Tracey Lauriault, specialist on big data and the city. They will share their speculations on future cities in the context of emerging and disruptive technologies, which will be open to the public.

The second day is a more hands-on and experiential, bringing together a diverse group of young professionals – talented individuals who will be in positions of leadership and influence in the coming years and decades – to help equip them with the knowledge, networks, and collective capacity to better understand the social and cultural implications of smart cities and their inevitable disruptions to the way we live, work, and play.

To be notified when tickets go on sale for the public event and registration is open for the conference, please contact Eszter Gero at eszter@artengine.ca.
