Facing our Time: the City of the Future

FACS presents its 2018-2019 season : AFTER TOMORROW! 

Art, Tech and Science Heading to the Future

 As time accelerates and innovation constantly reinvents our daily habits, it is tempting to say that today already is tomorrow. Let’s take some distance and start thinking together about how our future will look like after tomorrow. The fourth industrial revolution is now a reality. Born in Silicon Valley, it is reshaping not only our production methods and our relation to work, but also the core structure of our societies, of relationships, and even humans’ relation to their own condition. In this new era of uncertainty, what will guide us, identify us, shape us? What role and place will we hold in a society in upheaval? How will we understand social and intimate relationships? What perception will we have of our augmented or modified existences?

FACS is proud to partner with the French Consulate in San Francisco, the Cultural and Scientific Services of the French Embassy in the United States, the French Tech San Francisco and lInstitut Français to launch it’s new season : “AFTER TOMORROW”. Through this season, FACS continue its mission to promote, develop and support French-American cultural and educational projects, and to offer more opportunities for residents of the Bay Area and the Pacific Northwest to experience the diversity of French culture. The season will confront in San Francisco, Oakland, Seattle, Portland and beyond the perspectives of artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, philosophers, sociologists, writers, to imagine what our world will look like “after tomorrow”.

Our horizon? 2050! Throughout 2018/2019, drifting from utopia to dystopia, the variety of speakers and events (conferences, concerts, exhibitions, debates, performances, workshops, writing residency…) will allow the audience to understand the upcoming evolutions and to contribute in their making. Let’s imagine “After Tomorrow” TOGETHER! Whether you are an artist, a scientist, an entrepreneur, a financial partner, an event organizer, a media … JOIN “AFTER TOMORROW” NOW!
