3rd Annual Symposium on the Future Imaginary
Date: November 28th, November 30th – December 2nd 2017
Location: Winnipeg Art Gallery
In the 3rd Annual Symposium on the Future Imaginary, community members, artists, activists, academics, and technologists shared how they think the challenges of the present can be addressed, in part, through concrete, constructive, and critical dreams of the future. The Symposium attended to playful and serious, the fantastical and the pragmatic, the traditional and the contemporary. The future is all these things, and the future is Indigenous.
