The Restless Futures programme ran for twelve months, culminating in a major conference in June 2015.
Key events consisted of a series of seminars, workshops, exhibitions, performances, and talks that addressed four key themes: No More Stuff, Democratising Innovation, Disruptive Technologies and Expanded Boundaries.
Introduction to Restless Futures
We live in an age of extraordinary change in which the futures opening up before us are uncertain and volatile. Many of the standard methods of thinking and action are being left grounded as new systems and networks evolve at high speed.
Art and design disciplines, with their lateral, contingent and speculative means, are in a good position to address these restless futures, and to posit how creativity might engage in societal transformation.
