Future Now is Sheffield’s festival of creativity. Through exhibitions, events, performances and screenings we ask emerging artists, designers, filmmakers, animators, writers, architects and performers to open a window into their practices and show us their – and our – futures. This is a citywide platform showcasing the work of Sheffield Hallam University’s graduating students, and we invite visitors to encounter new ways of understanding the world through art, design, architecture, film, photography, performance and writing.
Future Now presents creative proposals to real problems: from new fashion to new videogames human-centred approaches to the built environment to greater sustainability in the products we buy. These ‘creatives’ propose new brands and services, help us glimpse alternative realities, and launch new enterprises, but most of all they tell stories, documenting the world as they find it and how they’d like it to be.
Future Now takes place across Sheffield city centre and online in May and June 2022.
