It's exactly one month until Techweek'18 Headline Event Creative Realities in Wellington!
The Techweek team has been curating this one-day exploration of creativity and technology in collaboration with Jessica Manins over the past few months, and we can't wait to share it with you.
We are thrilled to announce some more of the amazing local and international talent who will be joining us throughout the day, starting with our morning session, When creativity and tech combine forces, can we save the world? 
Blockchain, artificial intelligence, life-like gaming experiences...these are all examples of new technologies that any episode of Black Mirror could twist into a catastrophe. But what about the potential for ground-breaking benevolence? In this session, we've lined up a star cast of creative practitioners from five key sectors to showcase their solutions to global problems. Hear from Weta Digital's visual effects supervisor Dan Lemmon (main image); Parrot Analytics' Wared Seger; Pikpok's Mario Wynands and Adele Gautier of The Breast Cancer Foundation NZ.

What: Techweek'18 Headline Event Creative Realities
Where: Shed 6, Queens Wharf, Wellington
When: Mon 24 May, 8am-6.30pm
