Occupy the Future
Two days. Five stages. 4000 people.
FutureFest, by Nesta, is one of Europe’s largest festivals of the future. We explore ways to shape a better future through immersive installations, debates and inspiring talks from the likes of Ruby Wax OBE, Sir Nick Clegg, Paul Mason, Imogen Heap and Akala.
The fourth edition of FutureFest comes at a time when our relationship with the future is troubled. For many, the forces shaping our world seem threatening; from hidden influences over the media and politics to growing threats of terrorism and environmental degradation. FutureFest puts control back into the hands of the people. We believe in alternative visions and bold solutions to this era’s biggest challenges.
If the best way to predict the future is to invent it, then FutureFest is the place to start. Come and occupy the future at London’s Tobacco Dock on 6-7 July.
