Designing The Future of Everything

Mar 11, 2022

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Dare to imagine a future where we can hack our bodies into reaching peak health, wellness, performance, and longevity. Imagine a future where schools help children blossom into autonomous and conscious adults, and where humans thrive as an interplanetary species.
Futurists Phnam and Mardis Bagley do just that. With their design firm Nonfiction, they create the foundations of a better life for all, on and off planet Earth. Their work focuses on today’s greatest challenges: access to quality healthcare, food, energy, diversity, education, and safety.
Through unexpected designs and storytelling, Phnam and Mardis will walk you through the possibilities of unbound imagination, and what it really takes to turn science fiction into reality.
