The question of what the future may bring has always been the driving force behind the world’s most compelling ideas. It has pushed us beyond the boundaries of our geography. It has brought us closer together. It has, in many ways, saved our lives. And yet, our trek toward the future, being a blur of perpetual motion, ticking away at a steady yet breakneck pace, has often left us with little time for reflection or contemplation.

The Cooler Lumpur Festival has always been about the future. About providing that vibrant space at which we can have those important (and sometimes difficult) conversations that help explain who we are and, most importantly, where we’re going.

This year, at the 5th edition of The Cooler Lumpur Festival, we will once again look to the social, political, technological, and cultural ideas that have become representative of these times and tell the story of our collective futures.

Join us from 17-20 August 2017 at Publika.
