The FutureEverything Summit of Ideas & Digital Invention
by Startacus Admin
Hopefully by now, if you are a returning visitor to Startacus, you will kinda get that we are big on the idea makers...not just the established inventors, innovators and creatives - but those who have the potential to do something unique, individual, and creative with ‘that idea’ that remains stuck in the head.
The FutureEverything Summit of Ideas & Digital Invention which takes place between the 21st to 24th March in Manchester, is part of the established FutureEverything Festival that “in a nutshell is about visioning the future and making it real today” (their words, not ours).

Manchester based FutureEverything was set up in 1995, and whilst we here at Startacus won’t purport to fully ‘get’ all the discussions, events and seminars on show, we do however understand the philosophy behind the annual event. It’s quite simple; ideas change the way that the world thinks, acts and plays.
This year's one off event entitled ‘The Summit of Ideas & Digital Invention’ has been designed to showcase a wide range of digital innovation projects from international artists and developers as well as hosting their annual conference. Designed specifically to demonstrate that at its core, FutureEverything is about innovation in all forms, be it in research, digital media or contemporary arts & music.
Alongside this, the 2013 FutureEverything conference is based around three core themes - Creative Code, Future Cities and The Data Society. Each theme will be represented by a series of speakers, panels and workshops.
So if you happen to be in or around Manchester next week and have an interest in emerging technology, digital cultures, the arts and of course ideas - take some time to check out the FutureEverything Website for the itinerary and to see how much the events cost to attend.
Major price concessions are available for students and the unemployed (which we salute) so Startacus looks forward to hearing more about some of the weird, wonderful and potentially world changing happenings that occur.
If you like what you see here on Startacus and want to get involved yourself, why not become a member of our growing community by joining for free here! By the way...did we tell you that you're looking rather splendid today?
