Investing In Futures/Rethinking the Present—lecture, free and open to the public

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
10:00 am - 1:00 pm—Session 1, Sage Art Center
Each group will be given a set of constraints for a future scenario. From the narratives built in brainstorming sessions from these skeletal frameworks, participants will offer a set of outputs, or what would traditionally be perceived as cultural artifacts such as traditional dress, folk art, a signature dish, and a folk medicine. Participants will create prototype artifacts for their imagined reconfiguration of human/earth interfaces.

2:00 pm - 5:00 pm—Session 2, Sage Art Center
Same as part 1 with recombined constraints

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm—"Future Worlds Holiday Pot Luck"
Douglass Community Kitchen, Frederick Douglass Commons
Returning participants from parts 1 and 2 will use a community kitchen to prototype food, in order to create a signature dish from their imagined future.

Email megan.scheffer@rochester.edu to sign up for a spot in either of the sessions (and/or the potluck).
