Futurism Now: Limitless Hope through Speculative Fiction (Youth) Timelines: 4: Richie Wills Workshops & Events

Furturism Now

What if your future dreams for society become the dominant narrative for hope in the present? We will use speculative fiction—Afrofuturism, science fiction, fantasy — as a tool to create new worlds of hope and change. We will engage in using ideas of limitless technology, fantasy and science to rewrite the world and replace negative narrative with possibility and power.
