Future Fictions of Finsbury Park

On Saturday the 10 August I’ll be live in Finsbury Park celebrating its 150 year anniversary, by thinking about its future. It’s been a fantastic project to work on and I’m really chuffed with my story, Long Live the Strawberries of Finsbury Park, and I’d love you to join me for the reading.

This is the blurb…

“Gather round and listen to two short stories emerging from the heady mix of sci-fi authors (Mud Howard and Stephen Oram), scientists and the folk of Finsbury Park. Come and decide if these are the futures you want for your park?”

Times: 11.30, 2.30

There’s loads of other great stuff going on too – take a look at https://www.furtherfield.org/future-fair/

Interesting stuff…

I’m preparing for a workshop as part of the Furtherfield Citizen Sci-Fi project and I thought you might be interested in some of the stuff that’s going on in the worlds of the science and tech experts that are¬†participating in the project (i.e. blowing my mind with ideas as, along with local residents, we ‘world-build’ the Finsbury Park of the future).
