Emerge engages artists, designers, researchers, scientists, engineers, and public audiences to explore possible futures.

Since its inception in 2012, Emerge has pushed the envelope of performance, technology, and critical thinking. Each year we explore this intersection by asking challenging questions about the future of our mediated lives by building, sharing, and experimenting with visceral experiences of the future. Emerge is a performative exploration of the future, a lab for inspiring new ideas and prototypes, and an art-science research platform.
