Future of Work Symposium
September 19, 2018 • Kelly-Strahorn Theater

LIFE.CODE Interactive Experience
September 20, 2018 • Carnegie Museum of Art & Carnegie Music Hall
For the second consecutive year, Thrival and Carnegie Museum of Art will collaborate on a unique, immersive experience that explores a simple yet complex question: “What makes us human?” Thrival, in partnership with Third Thursday, will work with a wide range of collaborators to present curated technology simulations, art presentations and exhibits, and interactive activities throughout Carnegie Museum of Art. John Battelle, WIRED co-founder and CEO of NewCo, will moderate fireside discussions with tech and culture leaders in the historic Carnegie Music Hall — as we look beyond horizon lines and see around corners in an era of pronounced change and disruption.
