Future is Now Favoriting : Playlist from September 14, 2023

Hosted by:



FUTURE IS NOW is a podcast series exploring intersections between art and social change, produced by Z Gallery’s Shahrzad Arshadi and Caroline Künzle. The title comes from a song by German punk rock singer Nina Hagen. She sings: “1968 is over, it’s over, … Future Is Now! It’s really gonna be a better world.” Her lyrics express our feeling that change for a better world is happening right now, through the work of many. In each episode, we will tell you these stories of change: stories of artists and art projects that inspire us. As you listen, we hope they will inspire you too.

Future is Now broadcasts on CKUT on the second Friday of every month at 2pm. You can also listen to all the episodes here

Every 2nd Friday of the month, 2 - 3pm (EDT)
