Linz Writes its Future



Linz’s inhabitants and visitors are invited to jointly design the city’s future up to the year 2029: the elaborations can be playful, visionary, serious and fun. Linz’s Main Square becomes the setting for action and communication. A nine-meter-tall dais serves as a highly visible site for the presentation of a wide variety of future scenarios.


The FutureBoard
Via mail, e-mail, fax or in person on-site, visitors can submit their ideas in the form of statements, sketches, scribbles, graffiti and audio sequences. Among the presentations will be contributions by Linz youngsters who conducted an advance search for traces.

The daily focal-point themes will be complemented by a number of initiatives that carry on these concepts beyond the run of the festival:
Linz +25 (Michael Naimark, USA): Interactive calendar for future prognoses—the best contributions will be selected by the audience.
Future Me (Matt Sly, Jay Patrikios, USA): The e-mail from out of the future—dispatch it now and determine the date of receipt.
