ENG // Be a conduit, not a creator: Futurism as writing and designing

Feb 01, 2024

The future isn’t a place, it’s a story we craft in the present through our choices, actions, and principles. To design an equitable, inclusive, and frankly, more hopeful future, we need a more pluralistic approach. In this optimistic talk, V. Sri will share with us principles and stories about how we might broaden our toolset. It’s about writing and designing a story we all want to live out together. V will guide us through: – The future is not binary – Don’t leave out the impossible – Challenge the dominant narrative – Make friends with hard empathy – Be a conduit, not a creator
