Attended by over 300 people, and taking place at ArtScience Museum, the sold-out FutureEverything Singapore conference looked at how life, work and play are fundamentally transformed by technology. The conference opened a fresh dialogue between grassroots creative communities with government bodies, with participants remarking on its significant influence on national conversation in Singapore on the place of smart technology in society and culture.

Singapore is building the world’s first Smart Nation, and FutureEverything Singapore explored this vision for the future of Singapore through the lens of art, design and digital culture. The conference looked at how Singapore reached this new horizon, asked what’s next, and crossed boundaries of technology, culture and society.

The conference was opened by FutureEverything’s Founder and Creative Director Drew Hemment, Executive Director of the ArtScience Museum Honor Harger, and Minister Vivian Balakrishnan.

Minister Vivian gave a wide ranging talk on the big challenges ahead and how people can shape the future, the first session looked at what it could mean to live in a society where technology intervenes at every point.
