Very Very Far Away (VVFA) is a platform dedicated to democratising future narratives. Founded in 2015 VVFA explores multiple perspectives bringing members of the pubic and experts together to craft and disseminate new cultural fictions.

Through co-enquiries, podcast and a series of special projects VVFA engages and empowers audiences both in the creation and the communication their futures.

From installation and sculpture to sound art through to technical devices and performance VVFA projects cross multiple media aiming to embody and capture elements of the worlds formed during the co-enquiry. Projects are developed alongside co-enquiry and podcast, the three forms creatively informing one another.

VVFA explores new modes of creative collaboration between artists, technologists, scientists and partner institutions worldwide.
