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.

Over Thursday 31st March – Friday 1st April at Manchester’s stunning Town Hall, we’ll be asking artists, designers, technologist, futurists and many more to respond and debate Earth, Life, Community, and Intelligence.
