Growing the City’s cultural ecologies; an infomercial from July 2050.

A collaborative response to the ALTERNATE FUTURES LAB provocation:

“You have just time travelled to 2050. Greater Manchester is the kind of inclusive, forward-thinking, well-designed place we want it to be. In a city shaped by technology, what does this look like for our communities? How do we communicate, work and play? What is the shape of the art we make and the environment we live in?”

We introduced the concept of cultural ecology and community mapping of buddleia, as a biomarker of potential, in the city’s speculative reclamation process. 


Concept to production was approximately 6hrs.

ALTERNATE FUTURES was part of Distractions – a long weekend of debates, talks, panels, and showcases with some of the world’s leading tech companies, artists and producers. Presented by Manchester International Festival, Sound City and FutureEverything, developed by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham and Greater Manchester Combined Authority.
