ABOUT Other Futures 

Other Futures Festival
It's weird. It's mind-shifting. 

Other Futures is a multidisciplinary festival and exhibition that presents speculative visions of the future. 

Other Futures brings together makers and thinkers from all over the world who use speculative fiction to imagine and build other futures and invites them to share their visions with visitors from diverse walks of life. Most names are unknown in Amsterdam, some of them ring a bell, other participants are incredibly famous. Other Futures is the place to be for people who are curious, positive and open to new experiences focusing on a world not dominated by human beings.

Vision and mission

Mouflon Foundation devotes itself exclusively to the realization of Other Futures – Exploring New Perspectives through Science Fiction, the new multidisciplinary online and offline platform for people from all disciplines from everywhere in the world who think about and help shape the future, aimed at a wide and varied audience.
