ExtroBritannia's August event: Meet the UK Transhumanist Association

The next ExtroBritannia event is scheduled for Saturday the 21st of August in Holborn, London. Everyone invited.

This month's theme is: Meet the UK Transhumanist Association.

UKTA is the re-launched British Transhumanist Association. Its purpose is to spread transhumanist memes at all levels of British society through a mix of lobbying, outreach and education, and networking.

The event is structured in three segments:

1) 10,00am to 1,00pm: UKTA Board meeting. This is an open meeting and all those interested are invited to attend. The meeting's agenda involves internal organisational matters, the state of current projects, UKTA's aims for the rest of the year, and our relationship with the WTA.

2) 1,00pm to 2,00pm: Lunch

3) 2,00pm to 5,00pm: Meet the UK Transhumanist Association. An introduction to what UKTA is all about: aims, targets, current and future projects. Your chance to ask questions and make suggestions to the only pressure group with a transhumanist agenda in the UK.


Conway Hall - 10,00am-5,00pm (look for the "Artists' Room").

Lunch will be at a local pub (the Penderel's Oak), where we will also regroup for a chat over drinks after 5pm. You are welcome to join us there if you can't make it to the main event. If it is your first time at an ExtroBritannia meeting, look out for a copy of Kurzweil's "The Age of Spiritual Machines" displayed on the table we'll be sitting at.
