The Phi Centre is pleased to present a series of discussions about storytelling, art and culture in the digital age, in a space immersed within the Lucid Realities exhibition. A total of three discussions will be held, one a month from September through November, in an intimate setting limited to 35 attendees in order to stimulate interaction between the guest speakers and the audience. These new 5 @ Tech are an exclusive opportunity for attendees to enjoy an enhanced Lucid Realities experience and rub shoulders with videogame, multimedia and new-technology experts in a relaxed, informal setting.
Each discussion focuses on a thought-provoking theme around the interaction between humans and technology, starting with Nouveaux récits: expérience en solo vs expériences collectives in September. Attendees will have free time to visit the exhibition and enjoy a drink from the bar before the discussion begins. The theme of this second event is: Acknowledging body movement: humans at the heart of the matter, and the Phi Centre is proud to welcome:
