Festival of the Future is the University of Dundee’s annual event which celebrates science, arts and culture.
In 2019 we had 60 events across 5 days in Bonar Hall and other venues around the city. We collaborated with a range of partners including Dundee Science Festival, DCA and Dundee Rep Theatre, we journeyed to Mars, discussed robots, acted as a jury, created comic strips, learned how to recycle clothes and jewellery and experienced cutting-edge dance and film. We had great writers, poets and celebrity visitors including Liz Lochhead, Johnny Ball, Phill Jupitus and a spectacular music set by Ana Matronic. You can watch the promo for the 2019 event in the video below:
