Returning to Earth October 22 and 23, 2022

The InterPlanetary Project is the first project of its kind to combine celebration with experimentation, and conversation with analysis. InterPlanetary seeks nothing less than a whole-planet project — beyond borders, beyond politics, beyond economics — to activate the collective intelligence of this, our first planet.

Taking place in Santa Fe, NM, but transmitting its signal globally, and for free.
