FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The …And Beyond Institute for Future Research comes to Primary.
Recruits women of Nottingham for Future Space Programme.

Peripatetic think tank the …And Beyond Institute for Future Research has been invited by Primary to temporarily locate its activities in the city of Nottingham until the end of June 2015.

The …And Beyond Institute for Future Research (ABIFR) is actively recruiting women to work collectively to imagine the most exciting, radical vision of The Future they can. It is looking for women from all walks of life to bring their knowledge, passion and experience to the task.

Who makes The Future?

Is imagining The Future a political act?

Drawing on the illustrious – yet undervalued – history of women’s contribution to the construction of our shared human Future (including such luminaries as Sally Ride, Lt Nyota Uhura, Dr Mae Jemison, Dr Ryan Stone, and Sunita Williams) the ABIFR’s mission is to place women’s labour at the forefront of the Space race.

At 5pm on Tuesday 3 March 2015, the …And Beyond Institute for Future Research will held a press conference at PRIMARY, Nottingham, UK, featuring the world premiere of the it’s first infomercial.
