About

This afternoon symposium brings together researchers and practitioners whose work engages with the themes of Afrofuturism, Indigenous Futures, and other emerging areas of science-fictional/future-orientated cultural practice in which people of colour, indigenous cultures and non-Western subjects take centre stage.

Speculative design will be addressed in terms of its ability to raise problems, rather than solve them. As a tool for speculation, it opens up spaces for presenting problems, to model alternatives, and to generate imaginative responses. It will be explored in terms of its overlaps with art practice and in in relation to science-fiction writing.
