What to expect during the event
The more we roboticise, digitalise and algorithmically progamme all that can be programmed and digtialised, the more human our organisations will become - because the only thing left for the humans to do is that which is truly human. We’ve arrived at a point in our human evolution where our organisations have rewarded the humans who have performed most like good machines - reliable, consistent and functional while simultaneously creating machines to perform more like humans. I love what technology can do but this is not a digital world. This our human world, we are living in the digital age. How will this digital age change us? How can we lean into our humanity to make the most of the technology for a better world for all the humans on it? It will necessitate connect with our true creativity, our conscious intention and purpose. That is what makes us human. What can we learn from the artist mindset for more artful knowing and less linear thinking, for a more sustainable future.
The Digital Age - and the art of the human world
