re:publica on Sequencer Tour! – Call for Participation
July 29, 2019
On September 27th and 28th, 2019, re:publica’s Sequencer Tour is visiting Detroit! The city’s history, vibrant creative scene, urban and economic development, and its strong and engaged communities make it a prime candidate for a conference aimed at tackling big challenges and bringing about change. Detroit underwent a substantial transformation, declining from one of America’s richest cities to one of its poorest. Today, infrastructure and development in the city raises fundamental questions around accessibility. This is why re:publica Detroit will be about access: Who receives access to economic opportunity, creative expression, and urban mobility in this age of digitalization?
What are your answers, ideas, and thoughts around access? You can apply to be a speaker at re:publica Detroit until August 1st, 2019. Download our CfP-Onepager or visit the Sequencer Tour website for important information at a glance. We are looking forward to your submissions!
