SciFly NYC // 81 // Speculating The Inside of My Eyelids


Hey SciFly Readers!

As I mentioned last week, I am 100% exhausted from organizing PRIMER19 this week in New York City!

We had an absolutely AMAZING conference with a huge diversity of speakers, events, and workshops. 

It was so amazing to see the #futuresforall theme (which I had a big part in writing) expressed by so many unique individuals, projects, viewpoints, and perspectives.

In other great news, I was honored to join the Design Futures Initiative board this week!!! Can't wait to help grow the community even more and continue creating futures for all!

But, will all the excitement, I'm 100% exhausted. So, instead of rounding up events for you this week. I'm going to finally sleep.

Check out the Speculative Futures Instagram and Twitter to check out all the awesome PRIMER happenings!

Enjoy some PRIMER19 highlights below and I'll see you next week with more great events!!!
