Join Hungarian artist Katalin Hausel on a journey to unleash your imagination; find new stories, new paths, new possibilities, new identities, while exploring various artistic approaches. Create an exhibition of your new alter-ego, and even design a Near Future Museum for yourself. Katalin has extensive experience both in teaching art and in self-development methods that enable people to find ways to work and live in a way that respects their need for a meaningful existence.

While making things, we will look at Dragon DreamingArt of Hosting, mindfulness ,  Teal Organisation, Theory U, Radical Collaboration,  – and other new techniques that are available to prepare for the future that is cooperative, kind and respects the planet.

You will be challenged to:

– design a near future for yourself (or your alter-ego) by tracing the happiest phases of your life

– write stories about this future, creating an imagined world, using near future design methods, for this new you to inhabit

– create drawings, paintings and sculptures

– plan a film of your life based on this exhibition

– produce objects and texts for an exhibition

– create drawings, paintings and sculptures for a (fictional or real) exhibition of The Near Future You

– design a Museum of the Near Future for this imagined world, and create a book (catalogue) about it

All the while

– read and discuss short texts on philosophy, psychology, ecology, and the future

– chat about the weather, animals and plants

– talk about literature, politics, dreams and fears

– share your experiences and thoughts

– drink tea or coffee, occasionally a glass of wine

–  … and many more insight-stimulating approaches for self-expression, dreaming and path-finding.
