Micah White is a former editor of Adbusters magazine and co-created the international meme Occupy Wall Street. Influenced by philosophical ideas, political and cultural movements, environmentalism, and technological innovations, White inspires seemingly minor contributors to harness the power of information systems and participate in the creation and direction of culture.

White’s lecture The Future of Protest explores how visual culture plays an important role in social change through critically evaluating activist events like Occupy Wall Street. White speaks to the innovative position of artists and designers in the current environment of cultural and political civic engagement. White calls for creative re-imagination of how we relate to the world and others.
