Add to Calendar 04/01/2020 15:00 PM 04/01/2020 15:00 PM POSTPONED Making Space - Caitlin Conlen & Paisley Smith of the Feminist Futures project

Caitlin Conlen and Paisley Smith are collaborators on an ongoing project and series of workshops known as “Feminist Futures” based on the concept of world-building. In their own words, “World building is a design methodology that is often used to create sci-fi, fiction and fantasy narratives in film, video games, and literature. It is a practice in which a holistic world is designed, from which then an infinite number of narratives can be generated.” Conlen is a graphic designer by trade, and Smith an artist working in VR technologies. In this talk, they will be discussing how they use world-building as a collaborative practice within feminist communities to envision distant feminist futures.
