"Cabinet of Futures" is a Valletta 2018 project as part of the Cultural Programme.
The Cabinet of Futures is an exploration of a small European coastal city as it may develop in the next few decades. With ocean ecosystem collapse apparent, society reacts by implementing a number of utopic moments. The exhibition invites the audience to come in, explore the city, get lost in the bar and read the paper while listening to the locals talking about everyday life in a possible futures.
During the timespan of the exhibition a series of participatory workshops (futuring exercises) will inform adaptions of the immersive walk-through that makes the imaginary tangible, inviting individuals and communities to visualise themselves in the scenario.
