Event Details

Being human in the age of exponential technologies

What does it take to perceive the world from an exponential perspective?

The mindset we operate in was shaped by our families, schools, and structures that were serving the needs of a previous, industrial era. To fathom exponential technologies, we have to look at the world differently. Crazy as it sounds, we have to dig deeper into what it means to be human. No one can deny that technology is shaping our current and upcoming era. But how many of us are actively doing anything to bring their human journey into that technology? How many of us continously educate ourselves to become life long learners?

On May 27th, join us for an evening with a handful of people who truly are in the global driver’s seat, influencing and creating technologies inspired by the human experience.

Joint Idea is a launch pad for the work of your life. Our co-working spaces and adaptive learning programs future proof your work life by treating it like your life’s work. Which it actually is. We have figured out that when remarkable people and inspiring environments come together the right way, every day becomes an opportunity not only to work, but to learn and thrive together as co-creators, entrepreneurs, and as joyful human beings. Our mission is to prototype healthier, more meaningful, and naturally scaleable ways to approach work that flow with the beauty and wonder of the connected human algorithm. We believe that our purpose, our lives, and humanity could all improve if we just better understood and upgraded our minds, bodies, and souls as a way of working. Explore our website, come visit us, check out our events, and shift from your work-life to your life-work mindset! Joint Idea was founded in Istanbul in early 2015 as a co-working house and curated community with a humanist focus that brings together, music, food, art, play, agile learning, and entrepreneurial opportunities into the work-a-day experience. In mid 2016, we founded LifeWorksLabs as a hybrid co-working and re-learning platform that makes collaboration, meaning, wellbeing, innovation, and engagement more present in the corporate workplace. We support up and coming multidisciplinary artists, create human to human ventures, and curate rich education and development programs aimed at improving the quality of living for our local communities and global network.
