2084 IMAGINED FUTURES FROM THE SOUTH

THE FUTURE HAS NO OWNER YET:
IT BELONGS TO THOSE WHO IMAGINE IT

OCCUPY THE FUTURE!

The 2084 Imagined Futures from the South program invites us to occupy the future of Latin American cities by summoning our imaginations and amplifying the voices of those who are less heard.

This is a tool for the appropriation of the future
The future is currently a field in dispute, inclusive futures require considering the aspirations of society as a whole and not only of the sectors that are used to exercise their “capacity to aspire” (Appadurai, 2004). To ensure that the future includes everyone, we call on the imagination of all citizens and invite them to occupy the daily life of the future.

 

General objectives

1. Activate
Activation local nodes for creative and playful speculation over the future of daily life focusing on people and communities traditionally not listened to. In alliance with a group of educational and cultural institutions in several Latin American cities, the program offers a series of open calls to creatively express wishes, hopes, dreams and fears over daily life in the year 2084 in your city.
“Go to 2084, come back and tell us what it is like.”

2. Share
We will share local imaginations of the futures of daily life through their digital publication at the «Museum of Futures«. This museum will share and connect diverse local imaginations of the future.

3. Talk and learn
The library of imaginations of the future, shared from different locations, will be an input to generate broad dialogue and new learning between and among people in different cities. The project will document these processes of dialogue and learning by citizens and specialists, facilitating new connections and offering critical reflections on the multiple futures.

4. Connect
The activities of activating, sharing, talking and learning will lead to another goal: connecting the imaginations of a very wide span of citizens with decision makers of the future of cities. 2084 Imagined Futures of the South will transform the results of the calls and dialogues into pragmatic inputs to transfer the results of the program to governments and other interested parties.
