Join us and help imagine the future!
Imagining Futures takes the form of:
Daytime free event with talks and workshops 13:00-19:00 + Live music concert 20:00 - 24:00 + Private After Party (invite only)
Curated by Koichi Samuels (RESIST founder/research fellow at Sonic Arts Research Centre)
Experimental art forms can create a space for imagining futures. From sound art to free improvisation, participatory practices to techno – art forms that resist the constraints and restrictions of market influence, identity categorisations and political norms can transport creators and audiences to a space of imagining beyond cold, hard realities and our immediate situated experiences.
Imagining futures may be utopian, apocalyptic, intentional, subconscious, prophetic, deterministic and everything in between – yet undoubtedly musicians and artists are compelled to imagine through creating.
Throughout the day’s event, we will be exploring: what experimental and creative practices teach us about the future; ways imagining the future can bring meaning to the present; as well as challenging the panellists and audience to imagine their “perfect world scenario” futures, and devising concrete steps we could take to come closer to those visions.
