2015 talk video
Artist Annette Mees has a vision – a vision of the future as a public space, decided and created by us, its participants, rather than by brands, governments or authority. Her year-long project, The Almanac of the Future, brings together 15- and 65-year-olds from each continent of the world to map the last 50 years and plot a course for the next 50.
Annette’s approach is one of radical optimism. By listening to the experiences of other generations, and empowering ourselves to own our future, we create not just a vision of how the future should be, but an idea of the practical steps will must take to achieve it.
