Vinopolis, London

With its unique position as the UK’s innovation foundation, Nesta uses 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.

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 programme will span discussion, performances, installations and interactive experiences. Attendees will be engaged as active participants, informed and challenged to explore and formulate their own vision of the future.

One of the themes is to discuss the future of democracy.
