In 2015, FutureEverything celebrates its 20th anniversary. For the last two decades the festival has brought people together to imagine, shape and question the vision of a truly participatory society. In its 20th year, FutureEverything asks “what now?” for our digital culture? Do we need a bigger vision than open, local, bottom up is best? What are the values and narratives that will define the twenty years to come?
Conference: 26 – 27th February
What now for…Memory? Ownership? Democracy? The Weird & Wonderful?
Our four conference themes for 2015 and our 20th anniversary capture the unimaginable ways our lives have been transformed by the digital turn over the last 20 years.
