InclusiveFUTURES Workshops
InclusiveFUTURES brings together a new generation of talented architects and educators from around the world. This year's series of events will feature over 100 workshops operating in more than 10 different languages.

The InclusiveFUTURES workshops will kick off with the Opening Ceremony of 26 June 2021, and end with the Closing Ceremony on 3 July 2021. Both ceremonies will include a number of keynote lectures and discussions by world leading figures. This year InclusiveFUTURES will feature many awards for innovation including two new awards, for theory and for a female designer.

The workshops will vary from anywhere from 10 hours to an entire week. They will be hosted online using Zoom. Some will be live-streamed on YouTube and Bilibili. However, there will also be a few hybrid workshops with fabrication taking place in China and Egypt. All of the work produced during the workshops will result in a physical and digital exhibition.

-------------------------------------------------

Digital Consortium
DigitalFUTURES will also be launching the Digital Consortium, a shared platform for doctoral students worldwide. The principle behind the Digital Consortium is that it no longer makes sense to have individual professors in individual classrooms teaching individual groups of students, now that it has become obvious that we can all connect online in a single global classroom.

The Digital Consortium is not intended as an exclusive club for elite institutions, but rather as an inclusive platform for doctoral students worldwide. The Digital Consortium aims to bring discussion where everyone can come together, like some form of global brain. Invited speakers include Slavoj Zizek, Erin Manning, Sanford Kwinter, Manuel DeLanda, Achim Menges, Roland Snooks, Mette Thomsen and Philippe Block.
