The Anchorage Museum invites creative practitioners, changemakers, and those interested in positive change and climate change to gather at the Critical Futures Creative Conference to share, imagine, envision, invent, and create possible futures on April 13-17, 2020. This five-day conference is part of North x North, the Anchorage Museum’s celebration of connection, creativity, imagination, and innovation across the Circumpolar North, convening people worldwide for a discussion about potential futures.
The Critical Futures Creative Conference looks at three actions:
- Prototype. Creating examples of future solutions.
- Respond. Responding through language, visuals, voices, and action.
- Connect. Making connections between people, places, and landscapes as a way to understand, build awareness, and respond to climate and global change.
Working together, participants will develop shared platforms for collaboration and ideas. The schedule includes excursions, hands-on workshops, discussions, films, conversations, and live music. The conference concludes with the start of the North x North Fest and Borealis Film Festival, April 17-19, 2020.
National and international presenters include creative practitioners and innovators such as A/P Practice, Andreas Hoffmann, Arne Skaug Olsen, Anders Dahl Monsen, John Grade, Jonathon Keats, Mary Mattingly, Sissel Tolaas, Amy Mitchell, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Daniel Farb, Erik Schilp, Philippe Amstislavski, Landscape of Hope, and more.
Critical Futures is a SEED Lab project. SEED Lab is one of the five winners of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge. The public art vision of SEED Lab is a partnership with the Anchorage Museum and the Municipality of Anchorage.
