Two questions about futures

One could say, rather belated distribution of those interview-clips…
Someone else could easily reply: so what? The content was as relevant and significant six months ago as it is today.

Hence – here we go, delayed as well as still relevant – a handful of videos, introducing the thoughts and ideas of a handful great minds, being asked two, anything but easy questions, right after the Futures Brought to Life Symposium.

But: before you watch those videos – you might ask yourself:

How could one bring futures to life?
Which strategies do you recommend to maintain visionary Futures Thinking?

A note on our own account: there will be many more answers from many more great minds – as soon as we will publish the [already in progress] book, collecting our insights in the context of art-based research around experiential futures.

The Future Brought to Life (FBTL) symposium offered applied and theoretical insights into practices that aim to create experiences of futures. The symposium covered a wide spectrum of Experiential Futures practices, from Speculative Design via Mutant Futures to Physical Narratives. Meanwhile, its focus on Futures Literacy made the diversity and plurality of possible futures accessible to all interested parties.

“Futures Brought to Life (FBTL) symposium” is part of Curiouser and Curiouser, cried Alice: Rebuilding Janus from Cassandra and Pollyanna (CCA), an art-based research project of Design Investigations (ID2) at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and Time’s Up, supported by the Programme for Arts-based Research (PEEK) on the part of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF): AR561. All Time’s Up activities are also kindly supported by Bundesministerium Kunst, Kultur, öffentlicher Dienst und Sport BMKOES, Linz Kultur, Land OÖ & Linz AG.
