re:publica goes USA

We’re excited to announce the SEQUENCER TOUR USA: From October 2018, we will be hosting five events in Los Angeles, New York, Portland, Detroit, and Austin together with our event partners Reeperbahn Festival, and next media accelerator.

SEQUENCER TOUR is part of Deutschlandjahr USA. Over the course of the year, Deutschlandjahr USA will see numerous transatlantic projects, events, and workshops come to life in the US. The Year of German-American Friendship (“Deutschlandjahr USA”) is a comprehensive and collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institut, and with support from the Federation of German Industries (BDI). Deutschlandjahr USA is dedicated to exploring cultural issues, as well as questions about just democracies or new avenues within media landscapes. As one of Deutschlandjahr USA’s milestone projects, the Sequencer Tour will offer a platform for discussions and exchanges through a series of innovative event formats.
 
First Stop: Los Angeles
The first stop of our SEQUENCER TOUR L.A. Curated by re:publica, the conference program focuses on two main topics: Our “Politics & Society” track will focus on “Universal Digital Rights.” We’d like to discuss transatlantic topics and current societal developments relevant to both the US and Europe. Our “Leisure & Lifestyle” track focuses on topics such as digital sovereignty, digital sustainability, and social justice within a digital context.
