Tomorrowland

What is the future of truth? This is the boundless topic presented at Emerge 2013, a future-focused festival bringing together scientists, artists, humanists, and engineers “to build, draw, write and rethink the future of the human species and the environments that we share,” according to organizers. If it sounds a bit metaphysical, the event’s distinguished speakers base their theories and ideas on fact, occasionally peppering with a little fiction. The roster includes ASU president Michael Crow, “North America’s greatest living thinker about myth,” Betty Sue Flowers, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Buzz Bissinger (Friday Night Lights). But what is fact when fiction blurs the lines, and where does truth begin when the lies never really end?

Try to get a handle on the future in the midst of our changing reality at Emerge 2013, beginning Thursday, February 28, on the Arizona State University’s Tempe campus. You’re new outlook on the future is waiting.


Thu., Feb. 28, 9 a.m.-7 p.m.; Fri., March 1, 9 a.m.; Sat., March 2, 9 a.m.-10 p.m., 2013
