With its unique position as the UK’s innovation foundation, Nesta uses FutureFest to gather some of the planet’s most radical thinkers, makers and performers together to create an immersive experience of what the world might be like in decades to come.
FutureFest is designed as a multi-format festival which gives visitors ample opportunity to take self-guided journeys. The programme will span discussions, performances, installations and interactive experiences. Attendees will be engaged as active participants, informed and challenged to explore and formulate their own vision of the future.
The inaugural FutureFest was held in east London over the weekend of 28-29 September 2013. The event was staged to help complement Nesta’s work as a research body, investor and programme funder as well as a producer of world-class events
