LDF event

Talks, workshops and events all week explore how technology, ecology, culture and protest can build a more positive future. SOCIETY × SW9 will be joyful, challenging and mind-expanding in equal measure; we’ll mine the past and imagine the future. We’ll think, laugh, and most importantly: act.
