About

Futurecamp is Wysing's first residency and intrinsic events programme during 2014. During Futurecamp we will be exploring what the future might hold, from five specific positions. A series of fortnightly events will address elements of the way we live now and how these might evolve and affect the future and will comprise talks, discussion, screenings, performances and workshops.

The Way We Live Now: Environmental and Social Consequences:
The environments we live in, be they man-made or natural, are essential to our future development and possibly survival. The design and construction methods of the places and space's we inhabit affect our physical and psychological experience by framing the way we live, alongside their long-term sustainability and impact on the environment; therefore, are inextricable from the social, political and environmental eco-systems we inhabit. The increasing lack of affordable socially and economically viable alternatives has led to many people being unable to sustain a reasonable standard of living. As such, what are the alternative ways of living and who will propose and instrumentalise these?

14, 28 June, 12, 26 July, 9 August. Full details about the Futurecamp events programme can be found at http://www.wysingartscentre.org/whats_on/events/futurecamp
