TALK

Feeling the Future Talks

As we navigate extraordinary realities, this online series of talks engages with prominent thought leaders and futures thinkers on topical issues – ranging from emotional courage and mental wellness to social resilience and ethics – to reflect on where we are and where we could be heading.

Speakers include Ariel Muller (Managing Director, APAC at Forum for the Future), Scott Smith (Founder and Managing Partner of Changeist), Cheryl Chung (Co-Director of Executive Education and Head of Strategic Planning at Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore) and more.

More about the exhibition:

2219: Futures Imagined explores the possible futures of Singapore 200 years from now through a series of immersive installations, meditative spaces, films, paintings and sculptures. Inspired by the work of Singaporean writer and poet Alvin Pang, the exhibition is neither a utopian or dystopian view of the distant future and instead focuses on small, human-scale acts of innovation and contemplation. 2219: Futures Imagined intends for visitors to reflect on what kind of future they want for Singapore, and what actions they may be prepared to take in order to bring that future into being.
