By stories, we mean popular culture, Sci-Fi, film, media narratives, policy discourse, depictions of AI, robot myths, the role of memory mechanism in anticipating future events, and – finally! – the ways in which we tell stories themselves: from AR to VR, theatre and poetry, the infinite showreel of Netflix, to speculative design in innovation.
Engineers, artists, writers, emerging storytellers, Science and Speculative Fiction fans, filmmakers, designers, and all folks with an interest in invented futures – get in touch!
