Experimentation, play and
learning form the foundation to our creative process and Future C U R I O U S is an example of where this thrives. This research-based project is driven by dialogue between people, artists and futurists, and investigates the possible futures we want to see and create.
We kickstarted it in 2015, with The Future C U R I O U S Summer Festival powered by MAC Birmingham’s Next Generation programme. Working alongside Amy Martin, we developed a programme that enabled young people to explore future innovation and technology through creativity. The festival aimed at aspiring and emerging artists in particular, and provided a wide range of free and open access talks, lectures, workshops, labs and commissions to explore future
arts practice in relation to technological change.
Future C U R I O U S is an ongoing project and currently entering its next phase. To find out more and keep up to date with the project, please visit futurecurious.net
