Festival of the Future 2018

Occupying the space where science and culture collide, the Festival of the Future organised by University of Dundee between 17 – 21 October, will bring together design music, art, science, food, books and theatre. They’re working with partners across the city and throughout Scotland to bring you brand new commissions, world-class performers, authors and the best events for kids.

Over five days and forty events welcome to the first Festival of the Future. Besides workshops and unique performances, the festival will also count with the presence of Chris Brookmyre and Ken MacLeod, Ellie Mae O’Hagan and Alberta WhittleDr Kate Stone and Be CharlotteFred MacAulayLouise WelshAmbrose ParryNiamh Nic Daeid and Val McDermidHania Allen and much more!

We want to draw special attention to ‘Act Locally: the Present Fight for the Future of Equality’, an event we’re running in partnership with the festival. Also, be sure to catch the #Shpeel talk from some of the collaborators – a great insight into the project that represented Dundee at the London Biennale.
