The Long Progress Bar 2016 – Festival of Radical Imagination

In a one day festival of talks, screenings and music performances, Lighthouse presents The Long Progress Bar, celebrating radical imagination and exploring new methods of empowerment, collective action and technological progress.

This year the festival will focus on the platforms, interfaces and resolutions needed to build a better future, and asks a brand new generation of thought-provoking artists, activists and academics: what is progress?

Proudly presented in association with WeTransfer. Our media partner POSTmatter.
