FutureFest 2020 | Welcome To The World Of Tomorrow
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
For instance, we predict that in about two seconds you’ll be thinking about a blue elephant.
See? It works. And this is the rationale employed by Nesta, an ‘innovation foundation’ who exist solely to usher us into a brighter future by supporting the boldest of visions, and answering the biggest of questions – how can the planet sustain us? What will Alexa do with your biggest secrets? And what kind of cool stuff interactive experiences, performances, and talks should we pack into Tobacco Dock this March for FutureFest 2020?
Actually, we can field at least one of those.
For one, there’ll be a pretty impressive lineup of speakers attending, including famed documentary maker Louis Theroux; Richard Ayoade (“writer, director, amateur dentist”); Gail Bradbrook (Co-founder of Extinction Rebellion); and Magid Magid, the Somali-British former Lord Mayor of Sheffield, current MEP, and all-around extraordinary person.

And for two, there’ll be the installations, which will include:
And there are many more besides, as well as food & drink, and the Lates, which promise to set a series of inspiring talks & installations in venues from “a maze of underground tunnels to a rooftop urban jungle”.
We predict you’ll enjoy it.
NOTE: FutureFest 2020 has been postponed until London gets back on its feet (sadly they didn’t predict that). You can find out more HERE.
