"Fast Forward I The Future In The Making” is meant as an acknowledgement of the circumstances that are accelerating changes that were longly due, and as a celebration of the ability to "make" that is helping to navigate the uncertainty of these pandemic times.
“Fast Forward I The Future In The Making” finds in design the "whirlwind of social transformation", the founding infrastructure of a new individual and collective life between physical and digital, "which has the ability to give meaning, meaning, reason for existing to things".
Pandemics generate innovation, but they are also extremely difficult to navigate. How can we - makers, designers, entrepreneurs, activists, innovators, citizens - play a role in shaping the future?
Making is a mindset that carries the ability to redesign meaningful relationships; its transformative character is a key factor to fully understand the actions undertaken so far in response to the crisis but also an impulse to generate new responses.
