What we're about
Originally founded in San Francisco, Speculative Futures ( https://www.futures.design/ ) is a community of design practitioners interested in Critical Design, Speculative Design, Design Fiction, Discursive Design, Futurism, Science Fiction or any other incarnation of the approach which involves using design to speculate about alternate futures.
Members of the Ottawa chapter host workshop series to produce case studies and future scenarios, which will allow practitioners to learn how to conduct and apply futures design thinking in a variety of circumstances as a method of synthesis and strategy.
The 18/19 Series will be examining 5 prominent forces impacting the future of civic experiences: automation and technological transformation, leadership and politics, environmental change, social conditions, and economics.
Details coming soon.
