It's 2021 on Planet Earth.
The world has gone through a complete and unimaginable metamorphosis.
Transferred to a cold screen it became remote and distant.
Time felt like an unreachable illusion.
The fast pulse of Earth slowed down. (...)
After months in isolation, civilization begins to emerge again.
But human imagination has not been idle.
Humans now dare to dream and imagine together.
They dream of new tomorrows.
They design brave new tomorrows.
Can you imagine different tomorrows?
What would it be like to live in that world?
How do you think technologies being developed today will affect our
The Brave New Tomorrows meetup (based in London) aims to build a creative and collaborative space to combine
world-building techniques with design fiction to discover unseen potential
futures. Join us to speculatively build prototypes of possible tomorrows,
represent worlds and understand the implications of our potential futures.
Our aim is to learn from each other and have fun while reflecting on
problems related to topics such as the future of technology, artificial
intelligence, climate change, sustainability and social justice, so as to
imagine together the future we want (or don’t). The ‘how’ is open, through
writing, art, short films, prototypes, mementos of experiences and
anything that inspires us and the people around us.
In case you are wondering, the name of the meetup is based on the book "Brave new world" by Aldous Huxley.
“The beauty of dystopia is that it lets us vicariously experience future
worlds - but we still have the power to change our own”.
We are just starting! This project is very much an evolving one and we
expect things to change as more people get involved. If you are interested
and want to brainstorm more ideas, please get in touch.
We would like the project to include the following:
Topics Generation Sessions: let’s gather and brainstorm topics of
Design Fiction Sessions: we all imagine possible futures for a specific
topic we’ve picked for the day.
Creative Sessions: time to create with the stories we came up with -
writing, painting, drawing... anything you fancy!
Educational Sessions: we’ll invite experts in the field to share their
experience on some of our topics.
