Autumn (APAC) Futures x Design

2 Days, Live-Online (Starts at 7 am GMT+8)
Sep 25-26, 2022


Participants gain a solid foundation in the history and application of speculative practice through a series of hands-on, project-based activities. Learners follow the Futures x Design framework (FxD), a methodology for moving through modalities and mindsets to extrapolate, create, and experience the implications of speculative future products, services, systems, and technologies. Participants will finish the program with the ability to build strategies that map toward their preferred future realities.

This course was developed by the Design Futures Initiative, and is hosted in partnership with The Futures School as part of the larger TFS ecosystem of foresight and futures thinking programs.
