You answer the call. A vehicle stops alongside you. A voice asks you to get in.

It's 2097. The city is on the cusp of a new century and you decide where we go next as Blast Theory invite the people of Hull and Aarhus to imagine their cities 80 years into the future.

At the millennium, all those numbers on the clock ticked over together and we entered an age that was once the realm of science fiction.

Today, prime ministers and presidents seem to be at the mercy of events. Tax seems optional for some and it is uncertain who is in control and how we work together for good.

2097: We Made Ourselves Over springs from a desire to explore our capacity for self-determination and resilience in this context; to ask questions about the respective roles of technology, utopia and our own imaginations in setting a course for the future. Familiar neighbourhoods will become extraordinary science fiction landscapes in a journey online, on smartphones and through the city itself, throwing up new questions about how we will live 80 years from now.

2097 is an ambitious international collaboration bringing together Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017 and Hull UK City of Culture 2017.

Sign-up to hear about the opportunities and happenings taking place in 2097: We Made Ourselves Over.

2097: We Made Ourselves Over is a new work by Blast Theory as part of Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017 and Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
