VOL 13

September 21, 2018
@ Silver Spring Civic Building

Is there such thing as an eternal soul? Do animals have souls? Does artificial intelligence? What defines soul music? We have a ton of questions and several great speakers who will attempt to answer some of these questions with only 20 slides, 20 seconds apiece.

Buy tickets here.

 

This is a nonprofit event.

What to expect:

Come to the Silver Spring Civic Building on Friday, September 21, 2018 from 7-9:30PM. Spend the first ~20 minutes chatting with some friends, digging tunes, and enjoying beer, wine and light snacks. Around 7:20PM, we'll have the first half of presenters. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll be full of awe. Intermission. We encourage you to discuss ideas that you heard or considered through the first half. Maybe discuss it with a stranger. We'll have the second half of presenters where you'll go through a similar roller coaster of emotion as before. Afterwards, hang out and chat until we kick you out.

You can also buy tix here.
