PRIMER19 - FUTURES FOR ALL

Join us for our expanded 2-day conference on Thursday & Friday June 13-14th and workshops on Saturday, June 15th! (workshops sold separately) 


2019 Theme - Futures for All

In order to manifest futures for everyone, we need diverse perspectives and platforms that elevate more voices in discussions around where we are heading. We often fail to question who the future is created for, how it is made accessible, whose interests are promoted, and how power and agency are redistributed in its envisioning. However, these questions are hard to ask when technology is only imagined and designed by a small group of people working within industry.


This year's theme, FUTURES FOR ALL, highlights the wisdom and power of creating diverse spaces for interrogating the 'inevitable'. We intend to bring together participants from across industries and academia to share ideas, methods and projects that examine the reciprocal relationship between design, the world we live in, and the futures we want. Speculative Design, Design Fiction, Futurism, and Strategic Foresight are all important disciplines that can help us to look forward, but also better understand the current impact and influence of the technological, social, economic, ecological, and political patterns emerging today. Our goal is to further democratize these intersecting fields by showcasing underheard voices, viewpoints, and geographies in order to create a new, more inclusive, formula for Futures Design Thinking. Speakers are called upon to critique, challenge, and liberate how we think about the future, moving away from the stock ideas and dominant discourse popularized by today’s saturated media landscape. Together we will share outstanding work, radical practices, and pedagogical approaches to inclusive innovation.

What is PRIMER*?

PRIMER was created to prepare you for the future and to equip you to help shape it. It is the annual conference (in the US and Europe)  produced by the Design Futures Initiative, a 501c3 nonprofit based in San Francisco, CA and the annual gathering for the Speculative Futures community with 20 (and growing) chapters worldwide. We are seeking a wide array of designers, artists, technologists, makers, students, and organizations whose work focuses on questioning and rethinking our technologies, products, and systems, or proposes alternative narratives and future worlds.
