The Dissolve Unconference is going to be held at MIT on Thursday, Oct. 8, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., handling issue of just how can we break down the frameworks of energy that produce today’s inequalities?
Dissolve will function 10-minute “ignite” sessions, consisting of a quick talk followed by discussion, on central subjects of our time: climate change; civic news; sex inequality; anthropological and humanist views on culture and economy; neighborhood activism and co-design; affordable DIY wellness solutions; and much more.
The ultimate time will concentrate on open conversation and networking, including art and light meals. Gus Rancatore, owner associated with Cambridge-based ice creamery Toscanini, will unveil a ice cream taste known as “This is really what democracy tastes like.”
The goal of the event should determine typical themes and recommend options for operating systemic change. We’ll target bottom-up methods that can circumvent or change today’s political disorder and financial inequalities to move united states towards an even more comprehensive social and financial future.
At night, the Dissolve members will join with local art collective Illuminus for the immersive light and sound event, including DJ Wayne&Wax (Professor Wayne Marshall, ethnomusicologist at Berklee College of Music) and MIT’s DJ IanC.
Speakers include personal scientists, media theorists, writers, designers, activists, and much more. Scheduled to take part are Jose Gomez-Marquez, Christine Walley, Stefan Helmreich, Ed Bertschinger, Sasha Costanza-Chock, Ian Condry, and Chelsea Barabas from MIT; and Tomiko Yoda and Alex Zahlten from Harvard University.
Dissolve is organized by MIT anthropologist Ian Condry plus the imaginative Communities Initiative, a lab he co-directs with Professor T.L. Taylor. The big event is produced in collaboration using the MIT resolve conference and HUBweek, a gathering of technology, art, and innovation into the Cambridge / Boston location, using support of MIT Global Studies and Languages plus the department of Comparative Media Studies / composing.
