Manchester-based FutureEverything, one of the world’s leading innovation labs and digital culture festivals, has been commissioned by the Singapore government to deliver a conference and week-long festival as a landmark element of SG50, the year-long celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the founding of Singapore.

In its 20 years, FutureEverything has attracted 365,000 visitors and 2,800 artists to Manchester, exploring the meeting point of technology, society and culture. Through a community network and regular events it makes connections between thinkers, developers, coders, artists, designers and policy makers, inspiring them to experiment and to collaborate in new ways. FutureEverything Singapore takes place in the Autumn of 2015. It will feature a ground-breaking conference, live events, city-wide interactive artworks and design installations, and is being hailed as great news for Manchester's ever growing reputation abroad. 

Sir Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council said: '2015 is a milestone year for Manchester arts and culture, with a successful Manchester International Festival, the 20th Anniversary of FutureEverything, the opening of HOME and the news of government support for The Factory. It is great news that Manchester innovation and creativity is in huge demand nationally and internationally. FutureEverything’s festival commission by the Singapore government is a great achievement both for the organisation and for the city’s creative and digital sector as a whole.'
