Nelly Ben Hayoun will be a Keynote Speaker at the Primer Conference in June 2020! Nelly will talk during the conference’s main speaker event in Atlanta on the 25th and 26th of June, an event dedicated to Activating Futures – how we can apply speculative practices in order to manifest futures for all.

The year 2020, the time horizon for thousands of visions, predictions, and roadmaps, is finally here. Is it what we thought, dreamed, or hoped it would be? The Activating Futures theme for PRIMER2020 is focused on how we can apply speculative practices in order to manifest futures for all. The conference will span three days sharing diverse perspectives and practices, imagining alternative paths, and challenging ourselves to enable more equitable futures through the further democratization of the tools for building them.
