Partnering with Ruth Williams Opera House, PUSH builds upon their successful grand opening of their BIPOC Sanctuary in an event filled with networking, a live music and dance performance, and a chance to view test runs of new technology and dance science. In the dance performance, Simpson will demonstrate what happens when humans and tech collide in harmony and chaos by debuting the world premiere of Performable Posthumanism. Suggested donation tickets start at $20 with a special symposium with technologists and artists to start the event.

The symposium & performance is a culture driven experience empowering creatives, technologists and artists to empower and amplify the stories of Black founders. Leaders in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence take the space to perform demonstrations alongside their inspirational stories in a field where Black/African American individuals makeup only 7% of tech jobs according to Zippia
