The Festival As Lab Toolkit (FALT) is a set of tools for developing living lab research projects and for a new kind of relationship between a festival and its partners and host city. The toolkit was developed by Manchester based festival FutureEverything in collaboration with ImaginationLancaster at Lancaster University. FALT is an open source project that will be updated and maintained by a community of developers and users. Drew Hemment will introduce into the ideas behind FALT, explain the living lab methodology and elaborate on why this approach might be beneficial for curated festivals in helping them transform into agile RND environments for real-world rapid prototyping, open innovation and user-led design. This way also improving their participatory potential and nurturing nurture play, risk and community creation.
