Can blockchain technologies connect people in remote off-grid communities and provide clean, low-cost energy to improve their living conditions?

Join us for a free conversation with artist Calum Bowden and urbanist Aliaksandra Smirnova who will discuss their collective project Phi, a platform that connects people in remote off-grid communities to clean, low-cost energy with the aim of improving their living conditions.

The conversation will take place in the Architecture Studio and will reflect on our recent installation in the Invisible Landscapes series, designed by London-based strategic design studio Dark Matter Laboratories.

Before the conversation, Bowden and Smirnova will run The World Game workshop: a strategy and simulation workshop inspired by Buckminster Fuller’s World Game in which participants redistribute resources using peer-to-peer blockchain-based tools and plan speculative fictional scenarios.

This event is free, no booking required.
