History of the Future

Remember when we used to drive cars before trees grew right up through the concrete? Remember when it seemed the world was controlled like a giant machine and there was nothing we could do to stop it?

I organized this Free Skool workshop/event in 2006, 2007, and 2009.

Leave your cell phones, your plans for the afternoon, your car, your technology, everything from the present at home. Lost in the present, it’s sometimes hard to remember what we are fighting for.

This is a playful exercise in envisioning, nay, creating our future. This is a journey through time, fifty, sixty years fast forward. You are traveling leagues, decades, ages, a million miles from where you now stand. You have been called to a council of villages near and far to discuss the history of the future.

In each workshop, a dozen people came and met me in out-of-the-way abandoned places for an afternoon of making-believe that we were looking back from our future.
