non zero one are delighted to remount hold hands / lock horns for Nesta’s FutureFest at Shoreditch Town Hall. The two-day festival on 28 and 29 September is an immersive experience of what the world might feel like over the next few decades, curated by musician and author Pat Kane, with leading figures from science, technology, business and the arts.
hold hands / lock horns was developed in 2010 during research and development for the time out as part of an on-going exploration of how we can be held accountable for our choices. First performed in Edinburgh at Forest Fringe, it has since been shown at The Basement in Brighton as part of Supper Club and at The Light Shopping Centre in Leeds as part of Invisible Flock’s Bring the Happy.
The new ‘future edition’ is devised especially for FutureFest, a series of choices that contemplate the future and your relationship to it.
From the bright and uplifting to the dark and dystopian, FutureFest will present a weekend of compelling talks, cutting-edge shows, technology displays and interactive performances that will inspire and challenge you to change the future. Looking not just at potential scientific and technological developments, but also how these may interact with changing values, institutions and power structures.
FutureFest is split into four sessions, Saturday Morning, Saturday Afternoon, Sunday Morning and Sunday Afternoon and booking is per session at £36. hold hands / lock horns will run during all four sessions.
