What can you expect at Uncharted: The Berkeley Festival of Ideas?
Here’s a taste:
- Claude Steele will explain why an African American man whistling Vivaldi confounds white fear
- Robotics geek Ken Goldberg will tell us where self-driving cars take us
- Nobel laureate Randy Schekman will discuss what medicine is likely to conquer (and what it won’t solve any time soon)
- Brown Sugar Kitchen’s Tanya Holland has lots to say about how female restaurateurs are treated compared to their male counterparts
- Douglas Gayeton and Laura Howard-Gayeton will have you rolling up your sleeves to co-create some art on sustainability
- Saru Jayaraman will take us ‘behind the kitchen door’ in restaurants and have us rooting for low-wage workers in that industry
- Adam Mansbach might tell us why his next book is called You Have to F***ing Eat!
- Mina Girgis will dazzle us with his audacious Nile Project, bridging cultures and politics
The two-day Uncharted festival takes place on Friday Oct. 24 and Saturday Oct. 25 at the Berkeley Rep and the Freight & Salvage in downtown Berkeley, with a cocktail party on the Friday evening at the University Club on top of the Cal Memorial Stadium.
It’s a festival so there will also be live music, great food, a pop-up bookshop, a story booth… and much more.
One and two-day passes are available for purchase — now’s the moment to grab your tickets.
