Mon 22 + Tue 23 July | 11am – 2pm and 3pm – 6pm (each day) | Hexagon Theatre | FREE
Dressed in fabulous 1960s fashions and armed with vintage equipment (temperamental typewriters and giant notepads), a team of writers will be installed at MAC for a live literary experiment — but they can’t do it without your help!
Over the course of two days, they’ll be ready and waiting to hear your ideas about what the world might be like in the near or distant future, and the way you think we’ll be living, decades, centuries or thousands of years from now.
From fears about climate change and civilisations in collapse through to dreams of domestic robots and new nations among the stars — from ideas which focus on the fate of a single person to others which encompass the entire universe — our writers want to hear from you!
In a race against the clock, they will then have just one rotation of the Moon (namely, one day!) to come up with some brand new sci-fi short stories inspired by your very own visions for the shape of things to come. After the festival, the story collection will be audio recorded for a special MoonFest podcast release, available to stream and download online.
