Future & Memory

Planning and development, strategizing as a community is thinking about the future, constructing shared futures and figuring out how to get there. Futures are not predictions, and they are never a repetition of the present. One of the things that interests us is how ideas of the past, but also how things are remembered shape our ideas of the future and how we organize ourselves for it.
