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.
During this one day summit we host several sessions, bringing different speakers into dialogue about education and technology. The setting is informal, non-hierarchical and dialogue-based. The participants are joining with a diverse background from education, technology and art/activism/etc. The summit is particularly interested in engaging: artists, teachers, technical people (programmers), activists and designers, persons working in Humanities and social sciences.
Questions for Participants
- What is the future of education?
- Diversity, Community, Culture – in relation to their practice.
- Real Issues facing educators, what are obstacles to teaching and sharing technology?

Rachel Uwa is the founder of School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe. She is an artist, educator, and organiser whose background is in audio engineering and vfx compositing. Over the past 15+ years she’s lived in and organized social justice and tech communities and events big and small. She feels compelled to help bring these two worlds together and make the tech world less daunting and more diverse, inclusive, thoughtful, and fun.
Rachel’s biggest desire is to see people living the lives they dream of living rather than the one they feel they ought to. If that dream life is more artistic, creative, socially-engaged, technology-embracing and connects humans to each other and to themselves, well, all the better.
