Join us at the recently completed ISTB4 building for the launch of the ASU Center for Science and the Imagination, an institutional platform for ambitious thinking and creative collaboration between the humanities, arts and sciences.

President Michael Crow and Intel futurist Brian David Johnson will join Center Director Ed Finn to discuss upcoming projects and events, including the announcement of an exciting new partnership with Intel.

Following this we will lead the audience in an act of collective imagination, encouraging ASU students, faculty, staff and community members to share their big ideas for the future.

Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination brings writers, artists and other creative thinkers into collaboration with scientists, engineers and technologists to reignite humanity’s grand ambitions for innovation and discovery. The center serves as a network hub for audacious moonshot ideas and a cultural engine for thoughtful optimism. We provide a space for productive collaboration between the humanities and the sciences, bring human narratives to scientific questions, and explore the full social implications of cutting-edge research.
