Emerge 2014: Ethical Footprint Report

We are delighted to present the first publication from ASU’s Emerge festival: a report gauging the ethical impact of our 2014 event, which investigated “The Future of Me” through a panoply of performances, installations, exhibits, and interactive experiences under an enormous carnival tent in Downtown Phoenix.

The ethical footprint report includes statistics that help assess our impact, but its primary focus is exploring how Emerge 2014’s immersive “visitations from the future” posed ethical quandaries about our relationships with technology and one another and challenged attendees and participants to grapple with them in a tangible, active manner.

Emerge 2015 will take place on March 6 and 7 at ASU’s SkySong Center in Scottsdale, AZ, and will explore “The Future of Choices and Values.”
