From October 10-18, 2015, the people-powered U.S. Department of Arts and Culture, along with dozens of partner organizations, will dispatch “Emissaries from the Future” to create pop-up Imagination Stations in public spaces nationwide. Through a range of creative activities, Emissaries will engage passersby in exercising social imagination, envisioning the world we wish to inhabit and—looking back from the future—celebrating the work we did to bring it into being. The resulting texts, images, videos, and more will all be uploaded to an online platform, yielding a crowd-sourced vision of the future, inspiring art, policy, and community action. Join us in sparking social imagination! Find an Imagination Station near you!
