Thrival 20189/19/2018 - 9/21/2018
Thrival explores the intersection of humans, technology, and creativity through curated programs, original content, multimedia, and an annual arts + innovation festival.
The annual Thrival Festival is composed of two events: Humans X Tech and Music X Arts (an evolution from what we used to call “Innovation + Music”).
Humans X Tech
Humans X Tech events explore the impacts of humans and technology on business, society, and culture — particularly through the lens of artificial intelligence, robotics, advanced manufacturing, and life sciences (all Pittsburgh strengths). Our 2018 theme is “LIFE.CODE,” which features a Future of Work Symposium, our LIFE.CODE Summit, and the LIFE.CODE Interactive Experience. Humans X Tech events are hosted at venues in Pittsburgh’s East End.
Music X Arts
Music X Arts focuses on shared experience, with an emphasis on live music of all genres, interactive art and technology, and community gathering. Each year, Thrival experiments with different lineups, and have featured headliners ranging from rock, to EDM, to hip-hop, and more. This year, Music X Arts will be hosted at Highmark Stadium on Pittsburgh’s South Side waterfront, across from downtown.
