Possible Futures is a weekly lecture series that explores different ways to engage with and shape our collective futures, interrogating how the ability to ‘future’ can inform our practice as creatives, our actions and agency as citizens and our responsibility as human beings on this planet.
Our speakers are inspiring creatives, researchers, and activists that employ critical and speculative approaches to design and technology to question how ethical, inclusive and future facing our industry currently is. Lectures will explore various themes from human connection to mental health, accessibility and equality to sustainability, and the create narratives around possible futures.
Lectures take place every Wednesday.
This series is organised by Christine Wurth of Design for Performance & Interaction MArch.
Mariana Pestana is an architect and independent curator interested in critical social practice, as well as the role of fiction in design for an age marked by technological progress and an ecological crisis.
Mariana was recently appointed as curator of the 5th Istanbul Design Biennale, and is a member of the collective The Decorators, an interdisciplinary practice that makes collaborative public realm interventions and cultural programmes.
