The question “What is your desired future” is usually answered with several other questions. Among the most common of them is: “My ideal or possible future?”. Ideal is defined by the Merriam Webster Online Dictionary as: “a standard of perfection, beauty, or excellence, one regarded as exemplifying an ideal and often taken as a model for imitation or an ultimate object or aim of endeavour. What does this question highlight about our beliefs? Why are we reticent to share, or even imagine a future we truly desire? Why are our ideals perceived as unreachable? If it is, in fact, unreachable, why do we desire it? How does that limit what we can co-create? Our workshop is an opportunity for participants to explore these questions while imagining and creating possible paths towards desired futures.
