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. A belief in the emancipatory and creative potential of new technologies runs throughout digital culture. It is found both in the open source community, and in the rhetoric Silicon Valley startups. Today the contradictions in this vision have come to the surface.
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?
Over the past 20 years, the critical futurism of the Festival has been surrounded by an organisation that applies this insight in science, in cities, as well as in art. For our 20th anniversary, we are staging, not a retrospective, but a platform for a global community to collaboratively reflect on the bleeding edges of art, academia, design and business. Together we will forge new visions, hone our values and co-create prototypes and experiments that help us to figure out the path forward.
