Dear explorers,

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you that the 3rd edition of Fixing the Future Festival will be postponed until September 2022.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s become more challenging for our international speakers and attendees to travel to Barcelona this December. To offer you all of the wonders of Fixing the Future Festival in an environment of care and responsibility, we decided to move our signature event to September 2022.

It was an extremely difficult decision. But we’re committed to bringing you our two-day celebration in our usual hopeful, future-positive Atlas spirit, turning our winter extravaganza into a summer fiesta. You can expect the same inspiring activities, sensational venue, and incredible projects — at more pleasant temperatures.

Save the date ? Fixing the Future Festival, 16-17 September 2022, CCCB Barcelona.

AtlasVideo ▶️ Our co-founder and festival curator Cathy Runciman has an important message for all FutureFixers, including you. Watch it below:

Why are we postponing the festival?

To run our international celebration now would mean to miss out on a lot. Because of new virus strains and a new wave of infections in Europe, FutureFixing speakers and attendees wouldn’t be able to come and we’d be gutted to have to cancel some of the activities.

We believe that the power of the human imagination is stronger when we come together. We want you to be able to meet, reimagine, play, and even taste the future. In person.

We also want you to enjoy the festival in the safest possible conditions. This is a priority we cannot compromise on.

We thank you for your understanding and support. We are also grateful for the support of our speakers as well as Holaluz, Aigües de Barcelona, Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya, Oxfam Intermón and all our event partners.
