The 2016 event, “The Future of Sport 2040”, was held on April 29, 2016 at ASU’s Wells Fargo Arena. The space, which typically hosts NCAA sports, was transformed into a crossroads of ideas, demonstrations, and collaborative art-science installations.

A festival of athletic, artistic and scientific visitations from the future featuring theatre, improvisation, interactive experiences, design prototypes, & multimedia performances. What will sport look like in 2040? What would you like it to be? How can we steer development of the many elements of such a broad enterprise as “sport” to ensure it reflects our values, and desires and answers the cravings for competition and collaboration so common in our species?
