HOPE IN THE HEAT: IN CONVERSATION

About the event

An in conversation exploring the creative process behind Hope in the Heat, a project exploring and imagining hopeful visions of climate altered futures, with the Somerset House Future Producers and Studios resident Superflux.

Hope in the Heat invited six young creatives to imagine hopeful futures for the hotter world of tomorrow.

Over the course of seven mentored sessions with Anab and Jon, Directors of award-winning speculative design and art studio Superflux, six Future Producers developed their own perspectives and visions for other possible worlds; from intergalactic intimacy and space travel envisioned through the black queer gaze, to plant generated poetry and post-colonial herbology.

“The way a society imagines its future matters. And who gets to do the imagining matters.”

Oliver Morton, Planet Remade

After a warm welcome from Cassie Robinson, National Lottery Community Fund, this event will explore the creative responses of the Future Producers, which have been brought together in a digital space curated by Studio Koseda. In conversation with Superflux’s Jon and Anab, the Future Producers will discuss the ways in which their work developed and manifested over the course of the eight-week process, and explore the forces facing their futures.

The Future Producers working on this project are: Cherece Lucina Francesca Rechere Jessie Zhang Okocha Obasi Valeria Toro Zahrah Vawda
