Future Frontiers creates media, stories and immersive experiences that offer a window into a flourishing future. We reveal radical possibilities for self and society so that we can all become the change we want to see.

Future Frontiers embodies it’s own philosophy called “Optimistic Futurism,” based on a worldview that we are not just “along for the ride”, but are active creators of our own reality. The attitude we bring to this act of creation determines what kind of world we live in. Through understanding this, we are capable of reimagining our lives and the institutions that shape us.

The annual Future Frontiers event is designed as an immersive, narrative-driven experience of the future. Attendees can explore the 8 Frontiers and get a taste of what the alchemists of the future are cooking up on the fringes of possibility.

Future Frontiers was started in 2013 by Max Borders and Seth Blaustein who were fed up with incremental, outdated models for creating positive personal and social change. Future Frontiers was born and has evolved into a growing community of practical utopians willing to think subversive thoughts and push the limits of what’s possible.

Film/TV director, entrepreneur and co-founder of the Future Frontiers festival in Austin, TX. With a personal mission to serve planetary human flourishing, Seth is dedicated to creating media and imaginative experiences that expand and push boundaries. Beyond experience design, Seth can be found aggressively climbing trees, diving at Barton Springs pool and competing on American Ninja Warrior.
