Dancing drones, rousing debates and cybathlon technology

17-18 September 2016 at Tobacco Dock, London


Our 2016 weekend festival saw us explore how we might love, play, work and thrive in the future.

We saw dancing drones, watched people being implanted with chips, enjoyed many great debates and experiences, and heard from some truly interesting speakers including Will Self, Cindy Gallop, Brian Eno, DJ Spooky, Es Devlin, Mustafa Suleyman, Melody Hossaini, Sherry Coutu and many more.

The festival was curated by Ghislaine Boddington, Pat Kane, Ruth Amos and Dr Morgaine Gaye. Find out more about the curators and the themes for 2016.
