Ghislaine returns for a third time as a co-curator of Nesta’s FutureFest, which takes place this summer in London. body>data>space and Women Shift Digital are also official partners.

Ghislaine is co-curating a range of speakers, installations and debate panels exploring themes linked to the body and data from Future of Work, Machines that Care, to Virtual Physical Immersion and Augmented Bodies.

FutureFest is one of Europe’s largest festivals of the future, and explores how the most pressing challenges of our time could be tackled by developing radical alternative future visions. It features thought-provoking debates, innovative showcases, immersive experiences, and mesmerising installations, along with talks from those putting cutting-edge ideas into practice – across democracy and government, work, health, education and the arts.
