Join us for an interactive session as we unravel the importance of a thriving social imagination with Geoff Mulgan.

Based on his work and recent books ‘Another World is Possible: How to reignite social and political imagination’ (2022) and ‘Prophets at a Tangent: How art shapes social imagination’ (2023), we’ll explore the concept of political and social imagination, its implications for our societies, and how we might nurture the collective imagination from the soil of place-based communities.

The session will be a mix of presentation, generative workshop, and Q&A.
