About

Huge Future is a new online platform focussing on social activities which are bringing people together. Huge Future enables people to discover and share projects in the community within any field, including the arts, music, sports and education.

Background

Huge Future is founded by Mark Shenton and Louise Hilton-Tapp.

Mark is a photographer and Registered Mental Health Nurse based in Sheffield, UK. Mark has a background in website development, photography and film based community projects. – mark@hugefuture.org

Louise is a Modern Clinical Pilates teacher in Sheffield. Louise has a background in events management, corporate sponsorship and funding in the arts. – louise@hugefuture.org

Through Mark’s work within community projects, he saw the transformative power that meaningful socially-based activity could bring. On becoming a nurse within rehabilitation and recovery, Mark found that the people he was working with often did not know and struggled to find out what was available to them in their local area. Whilst thinking about this problem and the challenges projects face in promoting themselves, the idea for Huge Future was born.

Credits

Huge Future would like to thank everyone who has been in any way involved in the project so far. Everyone who has offered their time, contributed projects to the Mapping Project, or just sat down with a cup of coffee to see how things are going.
