In December 2017 MCN co-founders Bruce Mau and Bisi Williams spoke to a group of artists, designers, technologist, educators and futurists from around the world who gathered at the CAFA Art Museum in Beijing for FUTURE UNKNOWN Global Education Summit, a two-day round-table discussion and exhibition on the future of art and design education hosted by CAFA (Central Academy for Fine Arts).

The event was the first of three phases taking place over the course of 2017-2018 that will integrate global academic intelligence, re-examine art and design in the contemporary context, gather global institutions to articulate together, aggregate a new platform for future education development and collaboration, in an effort to jointly explore innovative solutions.
