Calling all inventors, artists, astronauts, designers, engineers, scientists, magicians, performers, creatives, makers, hackers and slackers :), of all ages!

Future Scouts is a series of creative laboratories to prepare youngsters, teens and adults with tools, frameworks and models helpful to navigate an increasingly complex world.
KNOWLEDGE

A crash course in the future - we share the significant shifts we are likely to experience in the next 5-15 years (and beyond). We highlight emerging paradigm shifts across science, economics, technology, arts and culture, and how they may affect us.

EXPERIENCES

Drawing on our network of artists, performers, musicians and technologists, we create experiences in which participants are exposed to next-generation technologies - masters classes and hands on experience with those who are on the cutting-edge of science + art + technology.

WORLD-BUILDING

We create environments and processes in which participants are encouraged to model and scenario their own desires and goals and future with different forms of media, using speculative design, storytelling and world building techniques to project into their future self.

Social media. Privacy. Reputation. Storytelling. Mindfulness. Quantified Self. Virtual & Augmented Reality. Robotics. Gaming. The Future of Work. Re-wilding. Space Travel. Creative Production. Critical Making. Rapid Prototyping. Systems Thinking & Crypto everything.

PROGRAMS

Future Scouts hosts a series of programs and events for youth and adults throughout the year. Summer programs take place over the course of two weeks in various locations around the city, with a different theme and focus to each.

More info on adult programs will be posted this Fall.

Part urban exploration, mobile classroom and creative workshop, Future Scouts encourages creativity, the value of collaboration and intentional and conscious use of technology. Each day we visit community art spaces, next-generation technology companies, co-working spaces, and spend time with invited guests who share their knowledge and experience. We explore and utilize museums and public spaces. Future Scouts creates an opportunity to confront the unknown and expand our future horizons.

Did you know we live on a spaceship? But we’ve got a few problems with the systems of our spaceship…water…waste…fuel…In these 90 minute workshops we generate ideas, explore systems, and then rapid prototype inventions to address complex challenges on Spaceship Earth!
