Event

Explore, celebrate and implement ideas that maximize human flourishing.

Join us for a daylong experience in three stages — One ticketSeeds, Sprouts, and Blooms:

1. Seeds

1. Seeds

Talks by Voice & Exit’s visionaries and entrepreneurs.

Talks – Join us at the beautiful Austin Music Hall for a series of fascinating talks that spans the spectrum of human flourishing. Speakers take the stage to share the latest in disruptive innovation, seasteading, biohacking, optimal health, opt-out culture, alternative education, futurism, social enterprise and more. During Seeds, new ideas will take root — you might call them ‘ideas worth implementing.’

2. Sprouts

2. Sprouts

Interactive breakouts, intellectual engagement, in-depth discussion.

Breakouts – It’s time to go deeper. You’ll have your choice among breakout sessions designed to break the mold. Sprouts is about intellectual engagement, in-depth discussion and creative exploration. Some people like to brainstorm. Some people like to get their hands dirty. And some people like to sit back and absorb the experience. Choose among approaches and themes during the Sprouts portion of Voice & Exit.

3. Blooms

3. Blooms

Festival of flourishing, includes food, drink, arts and entertainment.

Festival – Let the celebration begin. During Blooms — a festival of flourishing — the party unfolds. Listen to the music. Watch the performers and acrobats. Network with fantastic people. Explore the exhibitions at the bazaar. And, of course, enjoy the fun, food and performances that live in the sweet spot between entertainment and imagination. An experience to remember, capping off a day of discovery. (Govinda to headline!)

Which dimensions are most important to you?








Govinda (Shane Madden) will perform during the Blooms portion of Voice & Exit. His mix of electronic rhythms, exotic melodies and signature violin go perfectly with the beautiful dancers that accompany him.

About

Voice & Exit is an event built around a simple idea: human flourishing. We want to explore, celebrate and implement ideas that enable people to find well being, life meaning and stronger connection to others. Sometimes flourishing starts with transformation: speaking up (Voice) or opting out of the status quo (Exit) and creating something new.In a world that is increasingly rife with new insights and innovations that enable flourishing, it can be hard to keep up. Voice & Exit helps navigate all these promising pathways and equips people with the tools for personal and social transformation.

Along with exploring ideas that better enable us to flourish as individuals–such as biohacking, health optimization, positive psychology and expanded consciousness–we explore ways to develop new social operating systems that support happy, healthy, and free societies.

Human flourishing ultimately depends on peaceful cooperation among individuals with overlapping values and complementary preferences. Together we can create a world that supports this vision.

The era of coercion is passing away. The era of Cooperation and Connection has just begun.
