After an expected revival of the term utopia, thanks to the 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s book of the same name being celebrated this year with exhibitions, discussions and events around the globe, utopias emerge as a useful and provocative tool to invent better futures in the internet age.

What if we use utopias as a verb?
For IAM Weekend 17 we will go deeper into the meaning of utopias, with imagination and skepticism, understanding how they can evolve beyond contemporary dreams and help us navigate the uncertainty of our times.
We will do it by sharing stories, thoughts and questions about how the futures of media, education and the arts can blend to radically improve how we live, learn, communicate, work and play.
Check out the video above for the line-up so far, and learn more about The Renaissance of Utopias on IAM Journal!
Do you trust in the randomness of the internet?
IAM Weekend 17 will gather together a unique mix of 300 influential and curious minds from diverse cultural backgrounds, roles and professions with a shared curiosity for exploring internet cultures. 
If you're a designer, technologist, educator, curator, editor, strategist, researcher or anything in between, we encourage you to discover, be inspired and connect with a global IAM Family passionate about collaboration, discovering emerging talent and understanding the trends affecting the futures of media, education and the arts.
