2nd Annual Symposium on the Future Imaginary
Friday, August 5th, 2016
University of British Columbia-Okanagan, Kelowna, B.C.
The 2nd Annual Symposium on the Future Imaginary was an interdisciplinary conversation about where Indigenous communities see ourselves in seven, twelve, even twenty generations, and about how to develop strategies to get us there. The half-day event was held during the _O k’inadas // complicated reconciliations_ artists residency at UBC-Okanagan, Kelowna, B.C., on August 5th, 2016. It featured artists, academics, activists and technologists envisioning their own particular Indigenous Future Imaginary.
