The Evolutionary Frontier with Jay Ingram


Friday, Sept 15 | 6pm-730pm


Contemporary Calgary
701 11 St SW
Calgary, AB

Join Jay Ingram the Beakerhead Band as they dare to take us into the future. Not just some techy future inhabited with more extravagant social media, the metaverse and other imaginative but unlikely eventualities, but the future of humans. The year: 2050. The question: how have we evolved to get where we are today? Will that slow but powerful evolutionary process continue, or is it over? Maybe will we will continue to evolve but as hybrids of silicon and flesh: cyborgs. And when that happens – and it has already started –  will it conclude with a new human species, immortal, all-powerful and living entirely in cyber space? Prepare for an extraordinary journey as we explore a future brimming with innovation and boundless potential.
