About the Programme

The future demands creativity, adaptability, and innovation in a world marked by rapid change. We aim to facilitate an interactive workshop to empower participants to collaboratively design futures. The hands-on workshop is designed to help participants shape their futures by exploring discussions on Critical Design Futures (CDF TM) for innovation and experiencing Generative AI (GenAI) tools for compelling storytelling. By working collaboratively to design preferable futures, they will develop a deeper understanding of the power of design in shaping the world around them.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gain a deep understanding of how Critical Design Futures (CDF TM ) for innovation and Generative AI tools, such as text-to-image generators, can empower you to envision and articulate alternate futures.
  • Explore how these tools can be used to create tangible prototypes like videos and visuals, helping to bridge the gap between imagination and practical implementation.

Note: Please bring your laptop to the workshop for hands-on activities.
