Art for Future Making

Activity: PresentationConference presentation

Description

The potential of arts to make and share visions for the future, and to increase the inclusiveness of future-making processes, are increasingly essential areas of research to increase hope for a good future. The current climate change and the sixth wave of extinction show the grown impact of the human species on the world. Therefore, deeper care for other-than-human nature is part of a desirable vision of the future. In this research, we consider, how contemporary art and arts-based participatory methods can support the construction of such a vision of the future and human experience of being part of the web of life. Art is a way to imagine something that does not exist yet. The visions of a desirable future may help individuals and communities transform their lifestyles towards the needed change.
