Step behind the scenes and get a glimpse of the thinking motivating the digital world's greatest artists, thinkers and doers. Critical futurist and analyst, Scott Smith is our July Monthly talk speaker.


Scott Smith is a critical futurist from the USA. He is the founder of Changeist, a lab, research tank and studio created to identify and make sense of weak signals of change. His work is built on over 20 years' experience studying the development of technology and tracking social and cultural evolution around it. His main focus is exploring how we perceive and construct futures. As a researcher, he has lead field investigation and workshops in India, China, Turkey, Mexico and across Europe and North America. Scott has co-authored papers on applying ethnography to understanding the human factor in the future and on applying playful methods to foresight. He has spoken and run workshops at Lift in Geneva, as well as at SxSW Interactive, EPIC, and FutureEverything. He is also co-developer and lead instructor for the Futures Institute at the Duke UniversityTIP program and is leading a Futures Lab for IED Barcelona in the summer of 2013. For these and other futures learning labs he designs, Scott works with students to apply critical foresight and speculative design skills to develop creative responses to large-scale problems we may face in coming years. Scott's Monthly Talk is part of Lighthouse's 2013-14 new programme focus, Making the Future. We're focussing on making this future through the production of new work.
