SEQUENCER TOUR LA – RE:PUBLICA CONFERENCE DAY

(All times are in PDT)

Our Sequencer Tour event in Los Angeles is designed to link local and international influencers in music, culture, society, and politics into one transatlantic digital society. Join us when Europe’s first digitalisation roadshow goes to the USA!

Conference

Curated by re:publica, the conference programme 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. To find out more, click here.
