What is in the way of your future practice? What are the limits? What is missing? What do you need? Want do you want?

Where is the tension? What is the legacy you want to leave?

Cultural Futurist Lauren Craig invites you to reclaim the creative power of words that have been cooped by capitalism – trajectory // project // insight // trends // plotting // correlation // forecast – to think ahead of trends and imagine how you can use your artistic practice to create social, cultural and environmental value, change and impact.

During this interactive workshop we will cast future projections, look back at trajectories we have plotted, and think through ways to spot trends within our work, identify insights and develop future shifts. We will map out the impact we want to have and spend time rethinking what we invest in our practice and what expectations we have in terms of ‘return of investment’.
