Future Based is a platform that is not fettered to time and space, where collaborations arise, encounters take place and projects are initiated. We work together with partners, are hired as curators, programme makers, or function as a catalyst to bring into practice great ideas. Sometimes we do one-off collaborations like meetups, and we occasionally have long-term schemes, but Future Based’s network of curious minds will always be our point of departure.

Initiated projects:

Scientific Imagination

Future Based Podcasts

Sixty Minutes Back to the Future (online, lectures)

Meetups and gatherings. Directed by Sabine Winters, Future Based organized in 2019 -2020 , over twenty gatherings among other in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam, Arnhem and Nijmegen. With the corona measures the meetings are now mainly online. Are you curious about the past meetings? Take a look here.

Future Based organizes not only a platform but also a movement.


For me Future Based is an enrichment for the local philosophy scene and I am very looking forward to the next events.


What appeals to me is a nice diverse group of participants.


Future is not aligned to an institution or University. I think this is a strength of the platform.




Inspiration for everyone , and a wonderful stage.


Thank you infinitely for your organization of the podcast series. I have devoured through it with great interest. . I am quite inspired and would love to start making podcasts myself soon.

A great platform to get a new perspective on daily subjects. I love the combination of art, science and philosophy.


Very valuable, and I’m happy to support it. Interdisciplinary. Deep. Creating collective intelligence, nice!


Food for thought and exciting events carefully crafted by brilliant minds.
