Event Details:

Ancient Futures is a futurist STEAM immersive learning experience designed around principles of: (1) Harmonious inter-relation and kinship between human and non-human others, (2) Renewing ancient, place-based strategies of technical activity and re-engaging the cosmological, sacred, and mythological dimensions of technology, and (3) Art, somatics, and play as important--and scientific--ways of knowing self and world. Artists Corinne Takara, Spencer Chang, and Annie Chen arrive to lead workshops making solar-powered creatures out of local biomaterials and making clay data talismans. Lunch will be provided and a gongfucha tea service, a Chinese folk practice, will be offered by tea practitioner and sourcer Annie Chen. We are excited to invite you to join us in a day of co-making playful speculative technologies rooted in ancient transpacific ways of knowing and techniques of making. Please find more information about the experience on this invitation.
