What are we doing?
We use 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 took place across 14 and 15 March 2015 at Vinopolis, in London. The content focused on six themes: thrills, music, money, machines, democracy and two rapidly-developing cities in Africa.
The programme spanned discussion, performances, installations and interactive experiences. Attendees were engaged as active participants, informed and challenged to explore and formulate their own vision of the future.
The event is not designed as a traditional static conference but as a multi-format event which gives visitors ample opportunity to take self-guided journeys.

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.
