FutureEverything, Manchester’s prestigious city-wide ‘festival as laboratory’ returns from Wednesday 30 March – Saturday 2 April 2016. Combining a large scale cultural event – encompassing art, music and discussion – with new technology and playful social experiments, FutureEverything is a festival of art, ideas and invention casting an eye to the future.
Taking the theme of ‘Less and More’, the festival will explore how we can rethink resources within a world that is changing exponentially. Whether it’s a change to our antibiotics and food, or the world’s natural resources, the first thing that we look for is alternatives. With the carbon economy reaching its peak, we need to adapt to changes in climate, and find more tools, and more methods as a way of working with the inevitable. This forces a rethink on how we can gather, and manage, the resources of Earth to overcome the dependencies of the industrial age.
The event will include talks and events from: Assemble, Gazelle Twin: Kingdom Come, Moritz Stefaner, Peter Brotzmann, Heather Leigh, Addie Wagenknecht, Ed Carter & David Cranmer: Smoke Signals, Stefanie Posavec, Errorsmith, Reagenz and many more.
