Interactive Workshop: Miraculous Futures

In a two-day speculative storytelling workshop, biologist and multidisciplinary artist Ashley Baccus-Clark and artist Klasien van de Zandschulp focus on Feminist Futures and World Building.

Speculative storytelling is a way of looking differently at the present and future and provides tools for original solutions and radical new ideas. The results of this two-day workshop will consist of several stories, which constitute the beginning of an international ‘future thinking’ archive for Miraculous Futures.

The first day takes place at the MU Artspace (Eindhoven) on Saturday the 28th of September and will be made up of one big inspirational brainstorm, where ideas are exchanged, conversations carry on and people jointly consider the future of interactive art. Tickets are available here. On day two, on the 29th of September, the artists and you will roll up your sleeves at the NFF (Utrecht). Here, you learn to work with the ‘World Building’ concept. Watch how the ideas from the first day take shape and work as a team on a Miraculous Future. The second day takes place in the Winkel van Sinkel in Utrecht, from 13:00 until 17:00 o'clock. Tickets are available on this page. Both days have a limited amount of available tickets.
