What is the Future Factory?

Virtual Information Evening

From 15-18 June we will come together in Rome to build the future! Activists, academics and left organisations will meet to discuss and design non-militaristic, non-antagonistic and collaborative futures. Join us for a virtual info event on 3 May to learn more about the political context, workshops and speakers, and help us shape the Future Factory


The Future Factory is a three-day gathering bringing together activists, academics and left organisations to discuss, plan and design non-militaristic, non-antagonistic, collaborative futures in which war and exploitation will be not only unthinkable, but impossible! There will be workshops, lectures, plenaries and assemblies that connect peace movements with the struggles of anti-racist and refugee solidarity movements, environmental justice, feminist, labour and social justice movements.

We will host a one-hour discussion where we will set out the political context in which we are convening the Future Factory, as well as what we hope to achieve during this three-day event, and we’ll introduce some of the workshops and confirmed speakers.
