Understanding the 2018 themes

FutureFest 2018 invites the audience to occupy alternative futures. This year the festival sessions, installations and performances are exploring:

Alternative Visions:  How could we start to radically reimagine our society, economy, cities and democracies? What should the systems and institutions of tomorrow look like?

Alternative You: How are we reinventing and editing our identities? What kind of relationships will we form with intelligent machines, nation states and with each other? Where will we go to escape, to belong and to connect?

Making Alternatives: What are the practical tools and technologies we need to build the future we want? What can we learn from those who are working today to experiment with new model, mobilise movements and pioneer alternatives?
