We are not the number we think we are

An Arts & Sciences event to   imagine the future!

An event of the Daniel & Nina Carasso Foundation in part­ner­ship with the “arts & sciences” Chair, founded by the École poly­tech­nique / École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs – PSL / Daniel & Nina Carasso Foundation and the Cité inter­na­tionale des arts.

Françoise Vergès, political scientist and chairholder of the Global South(s) chair will speak at these workshops.

“We are not the number we think we are” will offer a unique expe­ri­ence for 36 hours non-stop, involving hun­dreds of artists, researchers and thinkers from var­ious geo­graph­ical and dis­ci­plinary back­grounds. At the heart of the pro­ject, a variety of people and col­lec­tives will gath­er tem­porarily to discuss the pressing issues of our world. They will take over mul­tiple spaces within the Cité inter­na­tionale des arts in Paris, a meeting ground open to the dia­logue between cul­tures, where vis­i­tors will be invited to reflect on the pre­sent and map together path­ways for the future. The common thread of this bound­less pro­gram is the fic­tional world of The Compass Rose (1982) a book of short sto­ries by science fic­tion writer Ursula K. Le Guin.
