Comedy for Strategy

October 12, 2016

The Art of Future Warfare project over at the Atlantic Council has a fun new effort: “A Robot Walks Into a Bar.” They are looking for the funny among you to submit stand-up comedy bits based on the Atlantic Council’s Global Risks 2035 report:

Like other Art of the Future project creative challenges, this contest will showcase the value of creative thinking about the future, especially technology, conflict, and demography. It will bring in new perspectives, which are increasingly valuable for their unexpected insights. By convening comedians and the policy community for an evening at DC Improv, there is an opportunity to develop the kind of insights about the future that only humor can reveal.

What’s in it for you? A cash prize and a chance to perform live at the DC Improv at an event hosted by real deal comics. You can find out more at the Art of Future Warfare website.
