Cancel the Apocalypse Meetup

Short thesis

Through the three days of #rp18 we argued for the need to reclaim our political imagination, and after we experimented with some methodologies to bring that about, this meetup is an opportunity for us to work together and further explore the next steps needed to Cancel the Apocalypse.

Description

The futures are dependent on us.

We want to think beyond our dark visions, beyond Silicon Valley’s techno determinism, beyond dystopian dreams, beyond the resistance framework that leaves us always playing defence.

We will reignite our political imagination. We will cancel the apocalypse. Through the three days of #rp18 we have covered climate change, science fiction, space exploration, data-driven determinism, resilience, plurality of futures, artistic activism and practical Utopia we will explore the futures as an open set of political possibilities rather than a predetermined algorithmic prediction.

After we argued for the need to reclaim our political imagination, and after we experimented with some methodologies to bring that about,  this meetup is an opportunity for us to work together and further explore the next steps needed to Cancel the Apocalypse.
