Food and Resilient Futures – A docuseries
Dear participants, viewers and listeners.
How do we want our futures to look? We present you with Food and Resilient Futures, a docuseries curated by the +Change program. To position you into the right flow, we build onto the world-building thoughts of Donna J. Haraway from her book Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene:
It matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what descriptions describe descriptions, what ties tie ties. It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories.
Our fellow students are staying with the trouble and questioning the current state of things. Throughout six episodes with different themes, food serves as a common tool to tell their stories. These stories work across different design fields, such as speculative design, design fiction, service design, feministic design, metadesign, etc. while using a variety of methods and tools for Change. These six episodes will guide you from the Me to We to the World Building paradigm and present the changes one can make towards our preferable futures. We believe that the presented projects will spark new ideas, encourage you to take action and shine some light on what goes on at the design department at Linnaeus University.
Hope you enjoy the experience!
Your backstage team,
Nadja O. and Jacob S.
