Singapore and the national vision of a Smart Nation.

– Phenomenal public reaction to cutting edge art and design installations,
giving Singaporeans new opportunities to play in public places.

a vision of an inclusive and participatory Smart Nation.

The FutureEverything Singapore festival was a partnership between FutureEverything and the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), and was the flagship digital culture component of SG50, the year long celebrations that mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of Singapore. FutureEverything Singapore was the only British contribution to SG50, and was announced by David Cameron in three major policy speeches during his 2015 trade mission to Asia.
