New Tools, Invented Futures

Co-creation, creative writing and shared discussion on the plural trajectories for care, work and technology
price: Headfirst Tickets


Join writer and producer Maria Leonard for an interactive workshop using co-creation, creative writing and shared discussion on the plural trajectories for care, work and technology. By centering the potential of imagination and the notion of ‘plural futures’, you will go away with new tools and tactics needed to think about the way you want to live together with others in the future.

Touching on the writing of diverse thinkers such as Arturo Escobar, Ursula Le Guin, to ideas and images of future forms of work, community, care and the technologies used to create them, Invented Futures will take participants through a series of creative methods, or “tools”, for charting alternative trajectories, ways of being together and the kinds of possible futures this can create in the face of uncertainty through four strands:

★ Utopia as method: Governance Futures
★ I do not dream of labour: Work Futures
★ Robot Intimacy: Care Futures
★ Entangled systems: Tech Futures

Building on the research produced by the Invented Futures collective, the session will introduce to the concepts of worlding and the commons, organising practices, emerging debates around living with technology and the urgent questions around living together.

We will challenge, question and develop participants’ notion of what makes a future, the kinds of people-led organising it takes to meet the demands of current future trajectories, and the imaginative responses that we need going forward.

Bring along a pen, your ideas and your imagination: imaginations are capacious and shifting, big and restless: we can have everything we ask for, everything we need.

Pay-what-you-can - the suggested donation of £4 will help us keep the School of Activism as accessible & low-cost as possible, £8 will subsidise a ticket for someone else - but no-one turned away through lack of funds!

The School of Activism 3.0 is a month long programme of workshops, talks and activities brought to you by Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft. Running at PRSC during April 2022, the events are intended to be empowering experiences equipping people with the tools to challenge the status quo, contest power structures and ultimately to change the world.

We learn by doing. We make our own future.
