What we're about
Speculative Futures Amsterdam is a component chapter of the global Speculative Futures community.
Speculative Futures is an international community of meetups focused on Speculative & Critical Design, Design Fiction, Futurism, and Strategy & Foresight, and any vision or approach which involves using design as a vehicle to speculate about potential or alternate futures. Speculative Futures is an effort steered by the Design Futures Initiative.
We host speakers — practitioners, teachers, students, and other professionals who will be talking about relevant praxis and methods. We also host workshops that will allow you to learn how to conduct and apply futures thinking in a variety of circumstances as a method of synthesis and strategy.
Speculative Futures is organized in city chapters around the world. The Amsterdam Chapter of Speculative Futures is hosted by Shauna Jin, Nicole Spit and Theo Ploeg.
We are still using this space to organize our meetups but we have moved our community to Discord. If you would like to join us and share ideas, please follow this link: https://discord.gg/qqH7tpAqZh
