An optional part two of the Visionary Folklore and Intergenerational Justice Forum, this workshop dives deeper into methods of collective visioning drawing on presenters’ and participants’ personal and community ideas and experiences. Through conversation, story-sharing, writing prompts, collaborative activities, and a few “out of your comfort zone” opportunities, we aim to explore tensions between past, present, and future; the role of disruption in creating fertile ground for transformation; mechanisms of support for visionary folklife work; and how to reclaim “speculation” from dominant legacies of extraction and empire.
