Future Now Symposium 2023
Mar 23–24, 2023
Aesthetica / Yorkshire Museum
York, UK

The Future Now Symposium is an exploration of 21st century culture through the mechanism of art. This multi-disciplinary event brings together key institutions, galleries, publications and artists for discussion surrounding the most pressing issues from today’s creative industries. Through imaginative debates, panel discussions, career advice and cultural engagement, Future Now is a platform for idea generation. You will be able to hear from the UK’s leading curators, artists, gallerists and publications.

Topics include: the ethics of representation, mass digitization, globalization, diasporic identities and the continuing threats posed by the climate crisis. This two-day event brings together leaders from the creative industries to invigorate our minds and invite discussions around the most pressing topics from the sector. This year we are looking at Designing the Future: Advancing Technologies, Innovators of Post-Photography, and The Future of Curation. Featured speakers include: Ingrid Pollard, Cornelia Parker, Yuri Suzuki and Hannah Starkey, alongside representatives from Open Eye Gallery, Barbican, Hayward Gallery, Baltic, Arts Council England and many more. Future Now is a platform for idea generation and a key event in the UK art calendar. The 2023 edition asks: how do curators make decisions? How does an idea develop into a fully realized exhibition? How can you ensure artistic success? In a world where attention spans have been reduced to three seconds, how do you captivate audiences and ensure that public engagement is high?

We will also be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Aesthetica Magazine and the founders, Cherie Federico and Dale Donley will be speaking about setting up an independent publication. Join us at one of the UK’s most engaged arts events this March.
