Jacque Fresco: Futurist

Mr. Fresco's background includes industrial design and social engineering, as well as being a forerunner in the field of Human Factors. Mr. Fresco has worked as both designer and inventor in a wide range of fields spanning from biomedical innovations to totally integrated social systems.

The Venus Project reflects the culmination of Mr. Fresco's life work: the integration of the best of science and technology into a comprehensive plan for a new society based on human and environmental concern. It is a global vision of hope for the future of humankind in our technological age.

A major documentary entitled Future By Design, released in 2006 on the life, designs, and philosophy of Jacque Fresco is now available on our videos page. This was produced by Academy Award Nominated and Emmy Winning filmmaker, William Gazecki. There is also a special expanded 2-disk collector's edition now available in the TVP Store that includes the entire 1974 interview between Jacque & Larry King.

The film Zeitgeist Addendum featuring Mr. Fresco and The Venus Project produced by Musician and Film Maker Peter Joseph was released in 2008. A sequel to this film, Zeitgeist Moving Forward, was produced in 2011 featuring Mr. Fresco's aims and directions.

The documentary Paradise or Oblivion, produced by Roxanne Meadows, introduces the culmination of Jacque Fresco's work, and viable solutions for the future. It can be viewed at http://www.paradiseoroblivion.com.

Mr. Fresco has been a guest lecturer at many institutions of higher learning. He was an active participant in discussions at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara, California. Mr. Fresco has addressed students at the University of Miami, Princeton, University of Southern California, Dade Junior College, Queens College, Presbyterian College, University of Southern Florida, Nichols College, Columbia University, Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico, Institute of Technology, Vienna, Austria, Penn State Greater Allegheny, Nova Southeastern University, City London University, University of Michigan, and others. He and Ralph Nader were featured guest lecturers at the University of South Florida. At Princeton University, Mr. Fresco addressed the Department of Sociology. His subject was Sociology of the Future. Along with the well-known anthropologist Margaret Mead, Mr. Fresco was extended an invitation to address the College Environment Conference in Washington, DC. He was a guest speaker for the Tenth Symposium for the Civil Engineering Department of TEC de Monterrey University in Monterrey, Mexico, Latin America's top rated college.

Mr. Fresco was a guest speaker at The Utopian Studies Conference in Orlando, FL and lectured at several World Future Society Conferences. He was a guest lecturer on future planning in Dubai, Untied Arab Emirates. Mr. Fresco was a speaker at the Technical University in Vienna. He was a guest speaker at the conference at Dalian, China for the Development of N.E. China, as well as a conference at Abuja in Nigeria for the revitalization of its informal sector. He was also guest speaker at a conference in Iceland and the guest of honor at The Futurists Summit 2008 in Istanbul, Turkey, as well as many other conferences, such as the Futurist Convention and the Future By Design Conference in Florida. Over the years, Mr. Fresco has also delivered lectures to numerous civic groups and various other organizations. In recent years, he delivered lectures at COP Kreativ, Copenhagen, Denmark; City London University, London, UK; and El Salvador, San Salvador. He was awarded the 2009 International Design Award from a! Diseño and lectured at their Life Loves Design conference in Ixtapa, Mexico. In 2010 he began a World Lecture Tour in which he presented over 26 lectures in 20 countries. It was very well received.

We have all heard lectures that downgrade the present state of affairs. They speak of such social problems as lawlessness, poverty, racial tension and divorce. But how many of us can recall any of these lectures offering creative solutions to these problems? Mr. Fresco's presentations reflect a serious attempt to illuminate the causes and outline a wide range of constructive alternatives. He does this by presenting a redesign of our culture, one that would emphasize the intelligent use of science and technology to enhance the lives of all people while protecting our environment. His subjects range from "New Dimensions in Human Stupidity" to "Imagineering The Future." A video often accompanies the lectures where his ideas are vividly brought to life through animated models, illustrations and computer animation.

His particular lecture technique enables uninformed audiences to grasp the significance of complex social and technical issues through his use of analogy, example, and anecdote. He speaks dramatically and passionately about the urgent transitional problems facing our contemporary society. His audiences find their attention focused closely on the words of Mr. Fresco from brilliant beginning to profound end. Mr. Fresco's lectures have consistently been received with praise and enthusiasm.

Mr. Fresco was the founder of Sociocyberneering, Inc., now known as the Venus Project. With his associate Roxanne Meadows, he has designed and built the entire twenty-five acre research facility. The function of this project is to prepare approaches and solutions to the major problems that confront the world today. Television, newspaper, and magazine coverage on the project has been worldwide.
