This year, Wysing Arts Centre is celebrating 25 years as one of the UK’s most progressive arts organisations.During 2014 Wysing will explore the potential of the future through what is known of the past, through a series of residencies, exhibitions and public events including an ambitious Futurecamp over the summer. In these, artists, scientists, politicians, philosophers, economists and architects will together explore what the future might hold for the individual and for society.
