Dear CRUMB
We have a few threads running through FutureEverything this year, one of the primary ones surrounds speculative design and design fiction, an outline of that below. 
All the best,
Drew



FutureEverything 2014 Festival & Conference
Thu 27 March to Tue 1 April, Manchester & Liverpool

Tools for Unknown Futures

It takes more than technology to imagine a future. Today, the UK design scene has become the center of an international movement that uses narratives, characters and scenarios to plot out the possible trajectories of society under the constant push of science and innovation. Critical Design, the field started by Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby, has blossomed into the rich vocabulary we call today Design Fiction; acts of the imagination that play the function of preventive measures, images that allow us to ask ourselves if that particular future is one we might like to live in.

FutureEverything is proud to showcase and celebrate this movement, as many of its leading names converge in the art programme of the festival and in the first day of the festival conference. 

"City Fictions" (http://futureeverything.org/festival/art/cityfictions), a full series of prototypes from the future, will take over the NOMA district on the Saturday and Sunday of the festival. This will be a speculative city, one imagined through conjecture and curiosity. A new edition of Hello Lamp Post enables visitors to talk to future city institutions and street furniture. Adam Harvey presents a world first anti-facial recognition hairdressing and makeover salon. A museum presents objects from the future by Superflux, Adrian Hon, Fabrica, Stefanie Posavec, Ben Hammersley, and more. Winning Formula is the premiere of a major new art installation and newspaper from 2018 on the future of data and sport, commissioned by FutureEverything, National Football Museum and CCCB.

On monday, the conference (http://futureeverything.org/festival/conference) includes up to 4 hours of conversation and 8 presentations covering emerging fields like robotics, synthetic biology, new materials, reprogrammable cities or the future of food. Anthony Dunne, from design visionaries Dunne+Raby and the influential Design Interactions program at RCA, will start an afternoon that will travel through the landscapes of the “Speculative Everything”, the title of his last book. He will be joined by leading UK practitioners like Anab Jain from design fiction giants Superflux, Daisy Ginsberg, one of the preeminent voices in the conversation around synthetic biology, or the influential futures urbanist Liam Young. Featured international guests will join the conversation to incorporate other perspectives, from Amsterdam’s Next Nature Lab and their work on the future of food production to Zuloark, the Madrid-based collective that has made a great impact in the architecture world with their work designing citizen-run public spaces.
