Event description
It’s not radical to critique our current society. It's radical to build a better one.

About this Event

Join us as we convene RadicalxChange’s rapidly growing community of activists, artists, entrepreneurs and scholars who are harnessing market mechanisms to challenge outmoded rigid forms of capitalism and unresponsive politics.

This March, we will gather for three days in Detroit for a series of presentations, workshops, breakout sessions and more. There will be meals and mixers, friendships and collaboration. The schedule and speakers will be updated on our website as they confirm. As of now, the conference will feature speakers like Jaron Lanier, founding father of virtual reality, philosopher, and prolific writer on technology and society; Margaret Levi, political scientist and Director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford, Vitalik Buterin, founder of the cryptocurrency Ethereum; Tristan Harris, Executive Director and Founder of the Center for Humane Technology; Glen Weyl, economist and professor and many others. This conference is unique in that its content will not be concentrated in one area -- technologists will rub shoulders with policy wonks, electronic musicians with academics.

If you’re sick of the current stagnation, inequality, and polarization, join us and be the change you want to see!
