Welcome to the 4th Renewable Futures Conference - Futures of Living Technologies 4th to 6th of November 2021

Body Text (no more than approx. 1000 words):

This year FeLT hosts the 4th Renewable Futures conference together with GREEN. In 2021 the conference will be digital. You can participate and experience it from November 4th – November 6th.


The submission deadline is September 6th

The 4th Renewable Futures Conference questions how we experience and express life and the sense of aliveness today. Actualized by our current global pandemic, we invite artistic, academic or applied research perspectives on relations and intersections between human beings, living environments and machines. This might evoke a sense of the uncanny and a fear of domination and surveillance. It might also reveal a world of possibilities of becoming, creation of new forms and behaviors. Could we co-create a more balanced existence? Can we enhance our senses and communication to become beings that are more adapted to co-existence with our environments and other species?

The 4th Renewable Futures conference will provide different formats for artistic interventions, discussion and exchange. The outcome will be a publication in the Renewable Futures series of Acoustic Space, as well as a curated screening program.

The Renewable Futures Network was established in 2008 and strives to facilitate new contact zones between traditionally separated domains – art and science, academic research and independent creative practices, sustainable businesses and social engagement.

Renewable Futures is a conference series that originated in the Baltics and the North European region with an aim to invent new trajectories for more sustainable and imaginative future developments. This edition will be online. We welcome paper proposals from researchers and artists of interdisciplinary practices from fields such as contemporary art, artistic research, art theory, media art, design and architecture, applied artificial intelligence, artificial life, robotics, life sciences, art education and other relevant practices. We invite presentations of artistic and transdisciplinary research projects, as well as examples and discussions of applied projects and entries to a screening program curated for online presentation. The conference will take place from the 4th to the 6th of November 2021. Additional workshops will be offered on the 7th of November. Specially invited key note speakers and presentations will be included in the program.
