ParTecK Collective Event Series 2019-2020

The ParTecK Collective is launching a quarterly event series as an ongoing space to raise awareness of significant issues of our time, intersecting with tech and ethics. We hope to stimulate participants intellectually and creatively, and building bridges with the greater ParTeck community.

The founding members of the ParTecK Collective – John Andreas, Harmony Barrer, Gary Lechance, Francisco McDougall & Michelle Martin are happy to offer these events at no charge to participants, thanks to a ParTecK19 Grant.
Decentralizing the Holidays
A special invitation to the ParTeck community

Thursday, December 5th, 2019, 6:30-9:30pm, dialogue starts at 7pm
Conscious Lab, #200 422 Richard St, Vancouver

Sleigh bells are ringing, children are singing, and you are invited to an unusually festive (and funky) Holiday Gathering courtesy of the ParTecK Collective!

Bringing together the topics of culture, power, and thriveability with a new format, the ParTeck Collective’s second event of the season will be focussed on Decentralization. At this event, we’ll dive into a dialogue around:
– How decentralization creates new spaces for a social diaspora with purpose.
– The role of decentralization in the future of the finance system.
– The hacker-proof human and decentralized autonomous organizations.

Speaker information will be shared before the event, and the format of the evening will be an unpanel; essentially, a decentralized panel where everyone participates.

What to wear! In the spirit of the Decentralized Dance party, we’d like to invite you to wear your favourite funk attire; retro, onesies and neon are all fair game and there will be prizes for best dressed.

Come and reconnect with friendly faces from and beyond the annual conference. We hope to see you there!
