On Tuesday, April 28th at 9:00am Pacific Time, Institute for the Future will host Dr. Stuart Candy, Director of Situation Lab, Associate Professor of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, and Fellow of The Long Now Foundation, for a free and public-facing webinar about how designing fragments of possible futures can help create social and organizational change. Professor Candy will share some of the methods that he has devised and employed with communities, learners, and institutions around the world.
Stuart Candy (@futuryst) is an educator, strategic facilitator and designer whose practice aims to amplify collective foresight using media, games and live interventions. A pioneer of experiential futures practices (including immersive scenarios, design fiction, speculative and critical design, design futures, etc), he has spent a decade and a half collaboratively developing approaches and tools to make design more foresightful and foresight more designerly, and bringing them to learners, leaders, and audiences around the world. He is co-creator of award-winning imagination game The Thing From The Future (2nd ed, 2018), and co-editor of the landmark open access collection Design and Futures (2019).
