Meet our movers and shakers.
Join us for a daylong experience in three stages — Seeds, Sprouts, and Blooms:
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.’
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.
Festival of flourishing, includes food, drink, arts and entertainment.
Festival – Let the celebration begin. During Blooms — a festival of human flourishing — the party unfolds. Listen to the music. Meet and 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. This will be a experience to remember, capping off a day of discovery.
Which dimensions are most important to you?
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.
If SXSW and TED had a lovechild with Peter Thiel, this would be it.
I love the overall premise. I felt inspired being in a room with so many heavy hitters.
The stories that were told were vitally important.
Learning of the creative, entrepreneurial work that is being done is inspiring. Thank you for putting together a wonderful group of people.
We’ve put together all 12 videos from the visionary speakers featured at last year’s event. Watch them here.
In this Voice & Exit talk, V&E co-founder Max Borders sets out his vision for social change. How can people “criticize by creating?” How can human beings flourish? Can we create new communities? Can we upgrade our democratic operating systems (DOS)? Meet co-founder and filmmaker Seth Blaustein as they launch their inaugural event.
