Call: FutureEverything Conference

FutureEverything Conference, 12-15 May 2010

The FutureEverything conference for 2010 is our best and most ambitious yet. We are also delighted to present the world’s best speakers under our conference themes of ImagineEverything, Unlimited Connectivity, Open Data and The City Experiment. 12-15 May 2010 Manchester England

The FutureEverything conference will take you on a journey through the most cutting-edge developments in a range of exciting fields. Join us to hear about why governments should open up the data that they hold, and what we can do with this information to change our lives. Listen to leading artists and scientists discuss what we can dream and do with unlimited bandwidth. Visionary speakers will illuminate the science of the web, the ways the networked city is being rewired, how poetry can be encoded into DNA, ways we can play the city like an instrument, and how relationships between generations are going to change over the next hundred years.

GloNet – Globally Networked Event

Contact Theatre: 13/05/10, 10:00 – 19:00

We are delighted to premiere GloNet, a new type of Globally Networked Event, shifting from a single city festival to one taking place simultaneously at cities around the globe using experimental formats. FutureEverything is inter-connecting Manchester and four cities around the globe: Sendai, (Japan), Istanbul (Turkey), Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Vancouver (Canada). Deeply connected to our The City Experiment theme, each host city will dynamically describe their views on the core issues facing cities today, from the question of growth to the possibilities of open data, to the impact of the creative industries and urban fragility. Featuring: Adam Greenfield, John Worthington, Nigel Shadbolt, and many more from all over the world. Tune in to the new reality of global connection.

The City Experiment
