Provocations & Postcards from the Future

Look out over the horizon, fast forward your watch, is the apocalypse closer than you think? For Future Echoes Festival in 2019, Express Media curated an immersive, stirring and playful hour of young writers who propelled us forward in time and shared their visions for the future.

One emerging arts leader delivered a provocation -- a creative, critical and poetic response to an imagined tomorrow. Following that, four young artists responded by sharing short postcards from their travels to the future.
