Future Now Symposium 2020

12-13 March 2020

Debate. Discuss. Connect.

We are currently living in a time of globalisation, expansion and media saturation. There have been considerable shifts in civilisation in the Information Age – we now communicate with each other instantly, yet with an alarming level of disconnect. Through panel discussions, lectures and portfolio reviews, The Future Now Symposium is an exploration of 21st century culture through the mechanism of art.

This two-day event brings together key institutions, galleries and publications for discussion surrounding the most pressing issues from today’s creative industries. Through imaginative debates, career advice and cultural engagement, Future Now is a platform for idea generation.

Individuals and representatives from the following organisations will be in attendance:

Aesthetica / Acute Art / Arts Council / British Journal of Photography / Cornelia Parker OBE / Creative Review / Flowers Gallery / Gazelli Art House / House of African Art / Jasmina Cibic / John Keane / Leeds Arts University / Magnum Photos / Martin Parr / Nadav Kander / Parker Harris / Queer Britain / Serpentine Galleries / Somerset House / Sotheby’s Institute / The Art Newspaper / The Photographers’ Gallery / Yinka Ilori / York St John University / Yorkshire Sculpture Park

More attendees will be confirmed shortly.
