Future Culture offered me familial warmth in an experimental and inspiring creative hub that welcomed and facilitated community connection. It broke down the barriers between the artist and the festival-goer, that festivals traditionally uphold physically and mentally, and provoked a fresh dialogue around what a festival is and could be. While it blended seamlessly with the greater Sugar Mountain festival, I could have very easily forgot the white and male-dominated event happening beyond the walls of the Future Culture space. It’s because of Future Culture that I felt incredibly safe and comfortable, which allowed me to fully immerse myself into the Sugar Mountain experience.
