    Join us next year for Impakt Festival 2017: Haunted Machines, Wicked Problems, curated by Natalie Kane and Tobias Revell

    The programme of this edition of Impakt Festival seeks to address the relationship between technology, religion, magic and the occult. Through the framework of myth, magic and monsters, an international line-up of speakers, performers, thinkers, artists, designers and technologists will address how in magic, the spectacle is used to hide technical processes; in myth, how we build stories and narratives to culturally assimilate complex technologies; and how we use monsters to think about when things go wrong and people are hurt.

    Natalie Kane is a curator, writer and researcher based in Manchester, UK. She is Curator of FutureEverything, an innovation lab for digital culture and annual festival, and holds a research position at futures lab Changeist.

    Tobias Revell is an artist and designer. He is Senior Lecturer in Critical and Digital Design at the London College of Communication, UAL. He is a co-founder of research consultancy Strange Telemetry and one-half of research project Haunted Machines. He is a Ph.D. candidate in design at Goldsmiths.
