Future Arts School Labs

Future Arts School Labs help arts universities anticipate futures and take steps to build preferred futures for higher arts education. They are designed for imagining alternative futures, strategic planning, and curriculum development.


Why organize a future arts school lab? What is futures thinking in arts schools? How can you organize an arts school futures lab? To answer these questions we designed guidelines. The guidelines are freely available for all arts schools to set in motion foresight projects to identify trends, create futures images, and design paths toward preferred futures.

Futures Archive

During the Art school Future Labs we develop ideas and visions for the education and employment of artists into artefacts from the future. These artefacts make up the FAST45 futures archive.
