Event description

Description

PRIMER was created to prepare you for the future, and to equip you to help shape it.

In February 2017 we gathered designers from across the world in San Francisco, California to bring you our inaugural conference. In 2018 we’re returning to bring you another world class lineup fueled by the community and experts from a range of disciplines.

While PRIMER was created as a platform for speculative design and foresight strategies, we welcome designers, futurists, architects, scientists, artists, and thought leaders to share their work, methodologies, frameworks, case studies, narratives, experiments and concepts that address the potential challenges and opportunities that the future holds.

  • We’ll kick off on Thursday, May 3 with some talks and an opening party
  • The main speaker day will be Friday, May 4 and held at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, CA
  • Workshops will be held on Saturday, May 5 at multiple design studio locations in San Francisco

Earlybird tickets go on sale Jan 15. Only a very limited number of earlybird tickets will be released so mark your calendars and secure your seats!

The theme for PRIMER is “Transformation & Possibilities”

This year's theme revolves around the power of transformation and possibility. More than ever we face issues that are challenging societies worldwide. From climate change to economic disparity, we must continue to imagine futures we want to manifest and ignite new possibilities for change. Join us this year and become one of the voices of our 2018 program that will transform our world toward the futures we all want and deserve.

The call for speakers is open until Jan 30

Speakers will be announced in the coming months



PRIMER is a project of the Design Futures Initiative, a 501c3 nonprofit that organizes the Speculative Futures meetups in San Francisco, Austin, New York and Berlin.
