We Should All Be Dreaming – The power of speculation

Here you can see recordings of the first part of the event. Adapted for the hearing impaired

How to dream about the future that we do not yet know how to dream about?

Friday 22th of April, we had an amazing day curated by Sonya Lindfors and produced by our producer and logistics manager Ingvild Kirkvik, in collaboration with Black Box theater and the Oslo architecture triennial. We started the day with an informative presentation by Michelle Tisdel about Ruth Reese. This was followed by a heated panel discussion with strong input from Tuula Sharma Vassvik, Nikita Amber Abbas and Duduzile Mathonsi.

A provocation from Thomas Talawa Prestø started the group discussions and reflections for the day.
