Digital Futures UKMX

Linking Dundee and Mexico City through a series of prototyping and making events tackling civic issues. A partnership with the V&A, Dundee University and Transitio Festival. #innovation


One of the prototypes, a mask for stimulating dreams, developed during the UKMX prototyping marathon.

Digital Futures UKMX is a series of exchange and collaborative prototyping/making events around the themes of civic awareness, engagement, collaboration and innovation in Mexico City and London linked with the V&A Digital Futures and Digital Design Weekend programmes and Transitio Festival in Mexico.

The project invites designers, artists, makers, engineers and the public to work collaboratively, share ideas and build open globally relevant tools focussing on the environment, climate change, e-waste and sustainability. Being part of this gives people the chance to share, influence and change the civic design of our communities, cities and public space.
