Alternative Presents as New Weak Signals
The following projects are the result of the Masters in Design for Emergent Futures 2019/2020 class. Evolving over the course of nine months, they show the evolution and application of all the methodologies presented here in this toolkit, from the first Design Space based on the Atlas of Weak Signals to the iterative consolidation of projects inserted in actual communities of practice, which present and provoke new alternative presents in the different range of areas of interest the students immersed themselves in.
The projects are presented here in five different categories, which are new weak signals that the students curated themselves, as an evolution of the weak signals which they departed from. They speak about relevant trends, interests and efforts at the intersection of the vastly diverse typologies of research and topics that the students engaged themselves with.
These projects look at contemporary methodologies of creativity and learning to empower citizens to discover new professional paths and become hybrid profiles of the future.
