What is the future of love?

As technology’s influence on our romantic relationships grows and gender identities shift, we are facing a new world. Experience your own interactive audio journey exploring provocative, challenging and personal stories.

Coming Out is an opportunity for Last Word audiences to sample an interactive installation that will have its world premiere at FutureFest in September 2016. It has been crafted by some of the UK’s very best emerging radio makers and groundbreaking digital artists.

You’ll encounter a series of objects that will trigger audio through your own mobile and begin to imagine what romance will look like in twenty years’ time.
