Unfinished Live

Unfinished Live is an annual event that brings together leading thinkers and changemakers from a wide variety of disciplines to engage in today’s most pressing questions about the impact of technology on our civic lives.  

The experience includes expert talks and conversations, dynamic exhibits and activations, and opportunities to engage with a community of innovators dedicated to finding creative solutions to the problems we face today. 

This year’s event will take place September 21-24, 2022 at The Shed in New York City and online at live.unfinished.com. We will gather leading experts and engaged citizens to explore a future where new technologies and policies enable a stronger democracy, a fairer economy, and a more sustainable existence.
