Call for Participation
re:publica aims to present the opportunities and benefits of new technologies in various areas of society, while simultaneously taking a critical look behind the scenes. re:publica Detroit will be all about access: from access to the Creative Industry & Music, Work & the New Economy, to Mobility & Urban Space. What are your answers, ideas and thoughts around access? Community input makes up the very core of our programme, so set up your speaker profile today and show us what you’ve got - the stage is yours!

Why Detroit?
With the rapid advancement of technology, digitalisation has become a global key indicator for societal change and transformation. Access to digitalisation has, however, amplified and perpetuated the existing divide within society. Taking a look at Detroit, a city that has undergone substantial transformation as once America’s richest city to one of the country’s poorest and now finding itself in transformation, fundamental questions around accessibility arise. Who receives access to economic opportunity, creative expression, and urban mobility in an age of digitalisation?
