Workshop Description

‘Futures Thinking’ as an interdisciplinary method for considering different versions of the future. It’s a set of tools and approaches you can use to help realize the most desirable of those futures and guard against the not-so-great ones. In this workshop, you’ll learn more about Futures Thinking while developing your ‘forecasting skills’ by writing speculative micro-fictions on a topic of your choosing. These micro-fictions, or extremely short stories, will serve as a basis for discussing our collective future. Not a writer? Not a problem! We’ll give you some templates and guide you through the process step-by-step.

Registrants will be emailed the zoom joining information the day before the workshop.
