Empiricon 2019 Highlights
In 2019, we pushed for more.
We not only wanted conversations, we wanted action.
Held on 30 September 2019 at the Esplanade Annexe Studio, Empiricon brought in technological experiences such as an augmented reality, a clear blank space, and housed exhibitors ranging from volunteer groups to governmental bodies.
Conversations considered the use of deep technology to start resolving production and consumption issues; we took a hard look at alternative food options, and we discussed building sustainable cities and communities together.
Empiricon 2019 used what we know best - sensory experiences - to create safe spaces for controversial discussions, to showcase and experience innovative and daring technology, and to pressure us into actually taking action, making a change, and hopefully, add a few more years to this planet’s life.
