Untitled Imaginary Society, bi-monthly online
Reimagine the Agenda, 11–12 June 2020, online
Untitled Festival, 17–18 September 2020, Helsinki
Untitled Imaginary Society
Thursday 23/4, 14/5 for 1,5 hours starting at 8 am PDT | 10 am CDT | 11 am EDT | 4 pm LON | 5 pm CET | 6 pm EET (HKI) | 00 am JST | 3 pm UTC
Untitled Imaginary Society is a monthly online forum to exercise our social imagination in practice and in theory. We assume that our current capacity to imagine better societies is limited and it keeps us from being in control of the deep societal transformation we are in.
Every online meeting has three parts: inspiration, conversation and documentation. Conversation part happens in small groups, and is a wonderful opportunity to meet fellow enthusiasts on social imagination. You are also welcome to join only the first part. Warmly welcome!
14/5 Gabriella Gómez-Mont: Imagination is not a luxury
Gabriella Gómez-Mont is a film maker, visual artist, experimental curator & urbanist, who fearlessly led the multidisciplinary ”Laboratorio para la Ciudad” bringing imagination and creativity into the government of the enormous Mexico City.
23/4 Geoff Mulgan: The Imaginary Crisis (and how to quicken social and public imagination).
Geoff Mulgan is Professor of Collective Intelligence at UCL and an Fellow at Demos Helsinki. The inspiration for the meeting was Geoff’s paper on the topic. See the recording on Geoff’s talk.
