FutureFest is Nesta’s flagship weekend event of immersive experiences, compelling performances and radical speakers to excite and challenge perceptions of the future

Date: 24/04/2024 – 24/04/2024


day of FutureFest will feature unique programming and some of the
content will repeat across the weekend; the full timetable will be
released in early February. Speaker highlights include NSA
whistle-blower Edward Snowden, visionary musician George Clinton, journalist and best-selling author Jon Ronson, human rights lawyer Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, and musician Matthew Herbert. The event will also feature innovative installations and demonstrations including NEUROSIS – the world’s first neurological thrill ride, Paul A. Young and Dr. Morgaine Gaye’s Sweetshop of the Future and Emotive City by architecture design firm Minimaforms. 

The event is not designed as a traditional static conference but
as a multi format event which gives visitors ample opportunity to take
self-guided journeys. The programme will span discussion, performances,
installations and interactive experiences. Attendees will be engaged as
active participants, informed and challenged to explore and formulate
their own vision of the future. – See more at: http://www.nesta.org.uk/event/futurefest#sthash.lGAwqP5w.dpuf
