Beyond Borders Summit


Summits are one-day gatherings where a diverse group of people come together to discuss the bigger picture, share insights, and challenge best practices. They are invitation-only and have limited seats, so you need to apply to join a summit.

What if when we think about the futures of cities, we define cities as verbs instead of just places?

What if this language-driven approach allows us to think differently about what is probably the biggest challenge (and opportunity) for cities around the globe: migration.

And what if we use the internet and emerging technologies with artistic approaches to embrace the complexity of migration and empower citizens to imagine, create and demand better futures for societies?

In the BEYOND BORDERS Summit, we will take a post-technological path to explore the role that arts & internet can play in shaping better futures for cities in relation to the epic challenge (and opportunity) of migration, fostering a more planetary, critical and long-term thinking by interconnecting a alternative perspectives.

About the hosts

IAM is a platform-based laboratory interconnecting the post-technological futures of Everything.
They discover, cultivate, connect and empower agents of change around the globe through curatorial & research projects, learning experiences and experiments.

Their approach is based in the interconnection of alternative perspectives in the edges and intersections of media, arts and learning to understand better the evolution of internet as cultures, aiming to have a positive influence in the agendas of companies, governments & institutions.

Founded by Lucy Black-Swan & Andres Colmenares in 2015, IAM partners with cultural institutions, universities and media companies as Tate, University of Arts London or the BBC to launch experimental initiatives, including events as IAM Weekend, a yearly gathering celebrated every spring in Barcelona to explore future-driven annual research themes, always expanding and following the principles stated in the IAM manifesto and their motto: In Randomness We Trust.
