FutureEverybody: FutureEverything 2012 festival

"FutureEverybody consists of short essays by participants in the FutureEverything 2012 festival and an overview of the festival and conference programme by the curators. These offer reflections on the FutureEverybody theme, the art and design projects in the festival, and the issues and initiatives presented within the conference.

A new participatory culture is changing our world. New forms of creativity and community occur through individuals coming together in arbitrary ways online. FutureEverybody looks anew at the ways in which people participate and co–operate are changing in a massively networked world. FutureEverybody was prompted by 2012's celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Mass Observation Movement and the UN International Year of Co–operatives."

(Drew Hemment and Charlie Gere)

Ars Electronica Festival: New Concepts for a New World

"THE BIG PICTURE is the theme of the [August 30 to September 3] 2012 Ars Electronica Festival ... Occupying the focal point is the effort to identify all–encompassing images that capture the world that's coming to be, Big Pictures that do justice to the progressive globalization and interrelatedness of our world, ones that capture its contradictions and flaws as well as ways in which people are coming together. By showcasing inspiring best–practice examples from art and science, this year's festival is a call for a new, open–minded way of considering the development of a viable vision of our future – how such a Big Picture ought to be composed and how it might become reality."

(Ars Electronica Festival, 2012)
