Are you interested in digital art, media, culture and innovation? Do you ever find yourself pondering the possibilities and pitfalls of the smart city? Would you like to attend Future Sessions on Thursday 22 March, but are unable to purchase a ticket?

We are pleased to announce our Future Sessions 2018 Bursary, which offers a free ticket to Future Sessions, plus the Launch Party on Wednesday evening at Whitworth Art Gallery, to 5 individuals that wouldn’t be able to attend otherwise.

We are particularly keen to offer places to those from lower economic backgrounds and underrepresented groups who would benefit from Future Sessions programme and networks. We want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to attend the conference, experience new ideas and meet new people.

What’s the catch? Successful bursary applicants will be asked to contribute a short piece of writing about their experience at Future Sessions to the FutureEverything website.

If you’d like to be considered for the bursary, simply email, tell us who you are and why you should attend. Please use the subject line: “Future Sessions Bursary – [Your name]”

Please note: FutureEverything are unfortunately unable to provide travel and accommodation to recipients.
