Mar 15, 2022

3:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Advance sign-up is required, and access is limited to the Primary Badge type listed. Please locate the RSVP button to reserve your spot.

Welcome to the 2050 Museum of the Absurd. Come aboard this expedition where you will be the archeological curator of the wildest, most unreasonable and illogical decisions made by society within the past 50 years. A denim jeans, representing the water distress we face in the 2050's. A hamburger that caused biodiversity loss. A single use plastic that led to the climate refugee crisis. The objects in the museum will help us understand how our everyday decisions have brought us face-to-face with humankind's greatest challenges in 2050. In this immersive theatrical workshop, participants will become archeologists and co-creators, using practical tools and methodologies to question the present status quo, speculate about future outcomes, and encourage us to radically reimagine our reality.
