The intention of the workshop is to expose viewers to the benefits of employing speculative design to enhance the quality of Foresight and Scenario Planning work.
Viewers will first have the chance to interact with examples of speculative design, and use the knowledge gained from that interaction to better define the nature of that specific future, taking into account social, cultural, economic and technological factors.
In an inversion of the first half of the session, the viewers themselves will get to build a scenario from the future in an interactive manner (using voting tools and pre-elaborated materials). From that scenario, they will be given stimulus to build artifacts from that future (e.g. parking tickets, recipes, phone bills, shopping receipts, nutritional labels, etc.), which they can then take home.
