News from Future Everything


    Happy new year, hello new website

    The new year is often a time for reflection and change, and we’re continuing to evolve at FutureEverything.

    Though our mission remains the same*, our new creative director is leading the team on an exciting, collaborative path to develop innovative partnerships and commissions. We’re also pushing our new festival model, Future Sessions, now a year-round curated conversation with communities around the world.

    Launching the new year with a new website, we’re heading into 2019 full of excitement to share our ideas and stories on a new platform. The new website is a fresh canvas to keep evolving into the future, wherever that may take us. So check it out, find out more and let us know what you think!

    *In case you don’t know, our mission is to bring positive societal change through art, design and technology. We empower citizens by increasing access to and participation in digital arts and culture.

    We’ve also got some exciting news from the Fault Lines cohort to share with you. More on that below…
