Futurism Now: Limitless Hope through Speculative Fiction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What if your future dreams for society became the dominant narrative for hope in the present? Deep Center`s Youth Leadership Team will use speculative fiction--Afrofuturism, science fiction, fantasy--as a tool to create new worlds of hope and change. Youth leaders will engage participants in using ideas of limitless technology, fantasy, and science to rewrite the world. Participants walk away with a sci-fi story that replaces negative narratives with possibility and power.
