Limited Capacity seats available

Kamal Sinclair—Executive Director of the Guild of Future Architects—will host Future Imagination in Present Action in collaboration with Sharon Chang, Allyson Green, and the Guild of Future Architects Futurists Writer’s Room: Tony Patrick, Robert Sinclair, Lafayette Cruise & Madebo Fatunde. The session will catalyze an informed and collective imagination of the future among delegates, as a fundamental step to designing or evolving shared prosperity. The audience will be invited to put themselves in the past’s present and ask what were the blind spots, assumptions, ideological constraints that caused us to take the actual path we took, instead of a different path. How do we consider that today is our future’s past, and to grapple with our role as stewards for future generations?
