Description

WELCOME TO RE:PUBLICA DETROIT!

re:publica, Europe’s largest festival on the digital society, is taking place in Detroit for the very first time. Founded in 2007 in Berlin, Germany, re:publica is a community-driven event that aims to provide a platform for digital expression, discussing current issues of digital society and envisioning the future.

Detroit and Berlin’s creative counter-cultures and shared history of techno music have created a special bond between the cities. re:publica Detroit aims to further strengthen this connection by creating an opportunity for transatlantic exchange around our digital future. Together, we want to explore the topic of access across three tracks: "arts & culture", "work & new economy" and "mobility & urban space". Who receives access to creative expression, economic opportunity and urban mobility in an age of digitalization?

Our program offers a great diversity of speakers, subjects, perspectives and formats thanks to the many inspiring submissions we received through the call for participation and the support of our amazing co-curators. We are looking forward to two exciting days full of creative ideas, open minds and intense discussions on issues of the digital society. Enjoy the conference, and make sure to join our evening program and the closing party on Saturday night!
