Field of Inquiry: Future Soul Think Tank | FREE

Field of Inquiry: Future Soul Think Tank | FREE

Part of YBCA's Public Square: Future Soul Edition on April 27:

For nearly a year, YBCA has pulled together a creative brain trust of some of the Bay Area’s most courageous thinkers and asked them to envision ‘What will soul look like in the year 2038?’ For one night, the group unveils its individual and collective responses, installing performance, food, design, muralism, holistic health, technology, and funk throughout the ENTIRE campus at YBCA. Part academic exercise, part intentional community, part JB Horns and Aretha Franklin tribute, YBCA and the Future Soul Think Tank invite you to our first public Field of Inquiry.

The Future Soul Think Tank is a new platform for a creative brain trust, designed to bring together the Bay Area’s most courageous thinkers, designers, entrepreneurs, community organizers, and artists into a collaborative cohort as part of YBCA’s Creative Ecosystem. The Future Soul Think Tank has spent its first year working with the question,“What will soul look like in the year 2038?” The question was developed in conjunction with Prophets of Funk, a performance by choreographer David Dorfman that celebrates the music of rock icons Sly & the Family Stone, which will be presented as part of YBCA’s 12-13 performance season. In addition to receiving honoraria for their participation in inquiry meetings and free tickets to YBCA performances that are part of the Future Soul curriculum (including Clas/sick Hip Hop), all Future Soul cohort members are given a free basic membership to YBCA, with benefits that include free admission to our galleries, subscription to YBCA’s monthly calendar, and exclusive invitations to member events. Additionally, each member is given a stipend to develop a physical, interactive, or immersive response to the question, “What will soul look like in the year 2038?”
