Event description

Description

So this is the Critical Xmas Bizarre Bazaar. Get in the festive mood with UAL Futures Studio and IAM. Settle in for planetary stories of Christmas’ yet to come, told by students of all disciplines from University of the Arts London.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. But what toys will be in every store in 2030? How will technology influence our daily lives and seasonal rituals? Will the World’s troubles be out of sight?

Gather near to Futures Studio participants as we critically explore Christmas futures. Feast on festive futures short stories - work in progress and collaborative research generated over the past two months by students from 20 courses.

Hear how students are using futures-thinking to understand how emerging technologies might transform our lives as they present playful research on trends looking towards the 2030 horizon.

Learn how alongside learning partners including IAM, BBC, It’s Nice That, Lecture in Progress, The Future Laboratory, Space10, The Pop Up Agency, students are creating alternative narratives for the futures of the things they care about - and join them on their mission to a Futures Summit in March 2018.

Snuggle up for a fireside chat with learning partners as we unwrap the merits and possibilities of futures thinking and cross-disciplinary collaboration in developing talent and making real change in the world.

Join us for a drink and connect with the Futures Studio and IAM families and find out how you can get involved as a learning partner and exchange the gift of your knowledge with young people wishing to invent our futures.

Have yourself a merry little Critical Xmas Bizarre Bazaar! Let’s hope it’s a good one without any fear.
