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.

Possible through the incredible support of Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Help Musicians Northern Ireland, Arts and Humanities Research Council - AHRC, Sound and Music
