Future Drawing Near: Future Drawing Here starts with the premise that hoping for a better future is not enough. We need visions, dreams and speculative futuring to propel ourselves toward new possibilities. Future Drawing Near: Future Drawing Here enlists everyone’s creativity to imagine and draw alternate futures for our world. Designed as a workshop with multiple levels of interest and avenues for engagement, the public will have the opportunity to participate in all four future designing stations: Rapid Futuring, Reflective Futuring, Systematic Futuring, and Shared Futuring. We will imagine possibilities and brainstorm ideas. We will draw the future where everyone is an agent for change.
