Future Folktales

Building a pluriverse of futures

Indigenous and local wisdom traditions relied on folktales often about the “wise conduct of life”. Folktales are some of the first lenses we receive through which we see and understand the world. 

What might be folktales from the future? 

How can we draw on future visions to develop narratives of “being” to guide us through the transition to a regenerative world? 

The workshops invite participants to bring together stories from their own personal experience and their imagination of a just and regenerative future. We re-tell these stories by contextualising them in the world of the future by adapting them into different worlds that engage with possible, probable or desirable futures.
