Survival kit for
the future

Buy tickets

FutureFest is a celebration of our power to shape the future. In 2020, FutureFest brings together interactive experiences, performances, talks and debates that you need to reset the clock on doomsday and build your own survival kit.

How can the planet sustain us? What will Alexa do with your biggest secrets? How can we learn to be alone together?

With questions as big as these, it’s tempting to retreat, take shelter in a remote forest and hide from the world. But what we need is a map and a compass to point us in the right direction. FutureFest offers you the essential tools to reset the clock on doomsday and navigate a better future.

FutureFest is based on the belief that the future is not something that happens to us, but something we can create. In 2020 the festival brings together the artistic installations, performances, talks and debates that you need to build your own survival kit for the future.
