FUTUREEVERYTHING SINGAPORE AT ARTSCIENCE MUSEUM

17 - 18 October 2015

Established in 1995, FutureEverything is an award-winning innovation lab for digital culture and annual festival. For 20 years, it has been exploring the meeting point of technology, society and culture which lies at the heart of the digital debate. This year, ArtScience Museum will be collaborating with FutureEverything to present key activities as part of its first major digital festival in Singapore. Exploring themes of a Smart Nation, and examining the possibilities this holds for citizens and governance, art, design and technology, the festival will encourage participatory conversations on the development of Singapore’s digital culture and is expected to draw thousands of Singaporeans, tourists, international artists and global thought-leaders to its myriad of conferences, live events and interactive sessions.

FutureEverything Singapore is a partnership between FutureEverything, an award-winning innovation lab for digital culture and annual festival established in Manchester, and Singapore's Infocomm Development Authority (IDA). The festival is under the umbrella programme, the Festival of Tech.
