About this event

Fables are one of humanity’s oldest forms of storytelling; sharing tales of moral inquiry and caution through archetypal characters to build shared wisdom, interrogate power, and navigate societal roles and responsibilities.

Fables for Imagining explores how this form of storymaking can be used to interrogate our contemporary collective behaviours and modes of existence with a specific focus on questions of civility in a post-digital world.

Responding to the impacts of accelerating technology, connectivity, and a rapidly changing social environment, this workshop leads participants to develop a series of techno-social fables designed to draw out the radical ways digital technologies are reshaping our world, while building a collective imagination for our future selves and society.
