The Many Tomorrows Festival (Sept. 14-Dec. 1)

There are so many futures to imagine and enable
So many ways to do it,
So many persons and communities creating them.
We want them to become visible, controversial, influential…
This is what the many tomorrows festival is about,
And why we need you to be part of it.

What

The Many Tomorrows Festival is an international, distributed sequence of events dedicated to alternative futures, and the role of arts in figuring them and making them happen,
Of all kinds: workshops, exhibitions, conferences, shows, games, carnivals…
Linked together by a common theme:

    “TRANS–” [–ition • –gression • –human • –disciplinary • –gender • –parent •–mutation • –mission •–  humance… or any new TRANS– you wish to explore]


Why

Because we need imagination, and a vast diversity of images and narratives, in order to see beyond the major transitions that are ahead of us, the Festival intends to:

Showcase the diversity and fecundity of possibilities for the future that only the arts can conjure,

Create a dialogue between future narratives, beyond differences in language, culture, practice…

Inspire in new audiences a desire and capabilities to invent futures, and act to make them happen.


Who

Any person, institution or group can organize a Many Tomorrows event, or connect an already planned event to the Festival’s international program, so long as you relate to the Theme, and are ready to receive and pass on the Torch.


Benefits

Whether you’re thinking of organizing a specific event, or of connecting an already planned event, the benefits are the following:

More visibility, especially abroad: Your event will be present on U+ Days’ global program and website, and highlighted during the social media campaign.

More connection: make your audience feel connected to other events elsewhere in the world; work together both for the local participants and for a global audience.

More contacts: Members of the Plurality University Network will be made aware of your event.

Support by the U+ team: access to expertise, content, methods, possible speakers; format suggestions, advice on content; if needed, using the Festival’s website to host your event’s pages

A small contribution to your additional expenses, if you need it (up to €500).
