Time to escape

Life is challenging with global political turmoil, lack of clarity, revolving lockdowns and much more. How do we get a breath of fresh air amid joy, dissolution, triumph, and the totally unexpected? 

We’ve resorted to software, apps, gaming consoles and streaming to get us through the days, and what have we learned? Prognostications on our future have come into immediate play in our social interactions with a clearer understanding of what society can take and what it can leave behind. Perhaps the escapist activities of sci-fi movies like Total Recall, Ready Player One and Sleeper do provide a true panacea…or not. 

Whether a virtual jaunt around the world or interactive gameplay of a new kind, “getting out of Dodge” has become a bit clearer.

Join us to discuss: 

  • Society's movement into remote/digital escapism. 
  • Enlightened views on the trajectory of tastes and product development around the world. 
  • How we’ve adapted and adopted opportunities for catching a break amidst a whole bunch of change.

Once you have signed up, you will be able to create a calendar invitation via the Zoom registration platform. We look forward to seeing you!
