Hear from artists, designers and scientists using future forecasting theory and technologies to visualize and create alternate future scenarios. Through VR, site-specific installation, art and performance, these panelists demonstrate the power of speculative design to influence policy and drive social change. Panelists include the artists behind Neurospeculative Afrofeminism, an experiential VR installation envisioning the future of women of color, and a policy scientist who deploys future forecasting to reimagine government policies and efficacy.
