Ferment.TV is an experimental space for virtual gatherings created, curated and produced by Faber Futures for and with Ginkgo Bioworks. It foregrounds emerging ideas from some of the world’s leading scientists, industry leaders, designers, artists, and thinkers – all operating at the intersection of biology, technology and society. Originated from the concept of annual interdisciplinary in-person meetings established at Ginkgo Bioworks in 2018, Ferment.TV democratises access to the critical futures-shaping conversations by bringing the discussion to the public sphere.

The COVID-19 outbreak has made plain the systemic relationships between science, technology, society and the environment. In the early months of the pandemic, at a time when we all started to re-imagine what futures lie ahead in a post-COVID-19 world, we thought that it is vital to broaden our understanding of how science and innovation interact with the ways we wish to live, take care of one another, and become better stewards of this planet. The impacts of the pandemic have been generating new global models of collaboration and protocols for systemic problem-solving, so how can we harness this space for equitable design innovation in biotechnology? How can we lead successful cross-professional dialogue to future-proof against biological threats and the compounded vulnerabilities associated with them?

Ferment.TV Speakers

Through the following themes of Innovating, Caretaking, Belonging, Living, and Thriving, Ferment.TV had been experimenting with different creative formats to produce live broadcasts that open a dialogue about the synthetic biology revolution and its impacts on the world. From one on one interviews to expert roundtables, these timely conversations have been moderated by Faber Future’s Founder & Director – Natsai Audrey Chieza as well as Christina Agapakis (Ginkgo Bioworks Creative Director).

No longer limited by venue size and travel, launching Ferment.TV allowed us to create an exciting and inclusive space to explore and share the emerging possibilities with our community and beyond. The presented conversations are available now in an archived version to watch at your own leisure.
