Drifts Festival - Unmapping Futures

Drifts festival 2021 explores the theme “Unmapping Futures” in order to map out a plurality of futures. Unmapping Futures opens up social spheres with 33 transdisciplinary practitioners for dialogue on current socio-political and ecological challenges, as well as actionable futures through screenings, performances, lectures, workshops and exhibitions.

Unmapping Futures is co-directed by artist-curator Soko Hwang and researcher-curator Mi You. The festival programs are co-curated by the artistic directors in collaboration with curator-educator Bassam El Baroni and curator Marianne Savallampi. The events are taking place at Kontula central square, Museum of Impossible Forms culture centre and Wenla in Kontula.

Please join us at Kontula central square on Thursday, 5th August at 06:00 p.m., and at events through Sunday, 8th August (free entrance) - The full festival program and further information is available on the Drifts homepage.
