To be strate­gic with­in the present we have to imag­ine the future. And to imag­ine the future in a way that is com­pelling, plau­si­ble, thought-pro­vok­ing, or put sim­ply: use­ful, we have to design it. This is the gist of 'design fic­tion': a heav­i­ly cre­ative and dis­cur­sive approach where we use the future as a mir­ror to ques­tion com­mon myths, act out emerg­ing social and tech­no­log­i­cal phe­nom­e­na, and reveal the desir­able or adverse effects of change. We achieve this by design­ing spec­u­la­tive prod­ucts, sto­ries, or immer­sive expe­ri­ences that make visions of the future vivid, engag­ing, and easy to com­mu­ni­cate both inter­nal­ly and to the public.

The Future Fish­ing Work­shop is a noob-friend­ly pro­gram meant for any­one inter­est­ed in our unortho­dox approach to envi­sion­ing futures. Through­out three ses­sions, you will be intro­duced to the meth­ods we use, the prin­ci­ples we cher­ish, and test these in guid­ed exer­cis­es. Our goal is to make you at least gain a degree of futures lit­er­a­cy or turn you into an unstop­pable force of future envisioning.

The Future Fishing Workshop will get you acquainted with

— scanning: to better look around for signs of change
— narrative design: to creatively conjugate signs into stories
— envisioning: to make your ideas of the future believable and relevant
— all with a set of methods we've derived from strategic foresight, scriptwriting, game design, and product design

The Future Fishing Workshop can be valuable for

— creating a strategic vision for the long-term
— decoupling your vision from trending topics in tech
— revealing hidden paths for social and technological innovation
— communicating your vision in engaging ways
