The Arthur C. Clarke Foundation Welcomes You!

Sir Arthur C. Clarke was an engineer, futurist and humanist who lived by the precept that it is our personal responsibility to use all our cognitive and creative capabilities to imagine past today to shape a better tomorrow.

The Arthur C. Clarke foundation proudly honors his legacy by sparking our imaginations, and daring to fuse our experience, creativity and expertise to think differently at the annual Unleash Imagination program. We invite you to explore this site for the legacy of Sir Arthur, information on the foundation, and details on this year’s exciting Unleash Imagination evening of events!
