The award-winning Latitude Festival taking place in Henham Park, Suffolk, gets even bigger as it announces Tomorrow’s World…It Takes A Village, and an ambitious new programme of events looking at visions of the future across our culture.
Across Thursday 12th – Sunday 15th July 2018, the programme will include events, installations and new work on the future of space, healthcare, food, and more. The festival will embed artists with local community groups, and bringing audiences together to look at how we can build a better tomorrow and how we can make a change today.
In The Future Of Technology & Power, expert guests explore the new power paradigm emerging in the digital age, and how we can begin to reclaim our agency from the tech behemoths monetizing our every move: Cassie Robinson, (Strategic Design Director at Doteveryone) chairs the discussion with tech authors Carl Miller (The Death of the Gods) and Jamie Bartlett (BBC 2’s The Secrets of the Silicon Valley), and Jessica Stacey, from Tech for Good Global. Suzie Imber (BBC2’s Astronauts), and Jason Isaacs (Star Trek: Discovery, Harry Potter), join the European Space Agency’s Mark McCaughrean and Helen Keen (BBC2’s It Is Rocket Science) to explore Space Rocks Presents The New Final Frontier. The Future Of Learning In The Digital Age will see BAFTA-winning immersive media specialist Catherine Allen, Professor Paul Howard-Jones (C4’s The Secret Life of 4 Year-Olds), Marcus Gilroy-Ware and dementia care expert Professor Esme Moniz-Cook discussing digital interventions in learning and therapy, chaired by Dr Suzi Gage (creator of the award winning Say Why to Drugs podcast). Robin Ince returns to chair The Future Of Healthcare, a discussion of radical new approaches in healthcare, between Dr. Daniel Davis and Dr. Karen Rodham.
