A new publication created by members of the Imagining Futures network, a EUNIC London funded project in partnership with the Goethe-Institut London and Transform Festival, Leeds UK
A year into the Covid-19 pandemic, Imagining Futures brought together twelve innovative performing arts festivals for a pan-European experiment: a future-focused network that offered its participating festival directors and artists a deep listening space and a moment to be together, think together, and dream different futures.
Care, well-being, and sustainability became prominent topics across the series of digital and in-person residencies. Together the participants considered how to share power, how to leave behind the inherited structures and ideologies that so many cultural institutions adhere to, above all how to rip up the rule book and work instead with radical new ideas and provocations that might transform ‘what is’ into ‘what if’.
The many provocations, inspirations, examples of existing good practice and desired ‘what ifs’ discussed by the network have been gathered into a new publication that aims to continue to inspire and inform the working practices of festivals, cultural institutes and associated organisations across Europe and beyond.

Current and classic episodes, featuring compelling true-crime mysteries, powerful documentaries and in-depth investigations.

The Piketon Massacre
The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
