For the duration of the #4thSpaceReruns series, 4TH SPACE is bringing you a curated selection of live streams from engaging past events as part of CU at Home. Join us via our Facebook page every other Tuesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. for a new #4thSpaceRerun!

On February 18, 2020, as part of its Rethink, Recreate, Reinterpret programming, 4TH SPACE hosted "Life and Its Definers: A Roundtable Discussion." Starting from a place of positive speculation, this conversation was a way to introduce new audiences to the field of synthetic biology and tackle some of the most important questions preoccupying its experts, including ethics, science history, or a futuristic vision of an Avatar-like world. Join the conversation as they consider, “if everything is possible, what now?"

This event was organized by Lancia Lefebvre and Kenza Samlali from iGEM Concordia. Participants included: Ananda Gabo, an explorer of food systems, bioartist, community builder, open hardware enthusiast and speculative futurist from Toronto, Dr. Brandiff Caron, Science and Technology Ethicist, Concordia University, and Justin Atkin of TheThoughtEmporium.com, DIY Biologist/Youtuber. iGEM Concordia thanks SAF for their support.

Watch the rerun of the Life and Its Definers Roundtable here, featuring a new intro by Kenza Samlali, a PhD candidate at Concordia’s Centre for Applied Synthetic Biology.
