27 March – 1 April 2014
Taking the theme of ‘Tools for Unknown Futures’, the festival will explore how we can collaborate on new tools, devices and systems to transform many spheres of life, from the arts to democracy. Drawing on powerful currents in today’s design scene, it will debate our fascination with tools as the most natural path towards social change, and open up new ways to question, imagine and make the strange, troubled thing called the future.
The FutureEverything conference will take place over two days in the stunning neo-gothic surroundings of Manchester Town Hall on 31 March – 1 April 2014 and will feature some of the most eminent practitioners and thinkers from design, urbanism, art, business and academia, as well as numerous participatory sessions, workshops and fringe events.
