Future Factory Day 2: Workshop

In part two of the Future Factory Symposium, participants will learn about a range of different production models and ‘future factories’, from bio-hacking to automation in a series of discussions and hands-on activities.

Part of the Future Factory Collaboration with the Design and Living Systems Lab and Central Saint Martins UAL's Material Futures Programme.

What to expect

Could organisms and non-human agents become the next makers? Will our factories be fully automated? Will our products be alive?

Join designers and students from the MA Material Futures programme as they create a series of future factories, exploring new systems of manufacture that address some of the profound challenges we face in this age of environmental challenges.

Through discussions and hands-on activities, you will learn about a range of different production models and ‘future factories’, from bio-hacking to automation.

Future Factory is in partnership with Central Saint Martins UAL's Material Futures and the Design and Living Systems Lab.
