Sir Geoff Mulgan joins us to explore the crisis of imagination we face in the midst of Covid-19 and climate change.
In his latest two books – ‘Another World Is Possible: How to Reignite Social and Political Imagination’ and ‘Prophets at a Tangent: How Art Shapes Social Imagination’ – he argues that while many are resigned to fatalism, people can use creative imagination to achieve a better future.
Drawing on social sciences, the arts, philosophy, and history, Mulgan provides a roadmap for the future and offers lessons we can learn from the past. His talk will discuss methods we can use now to open up thinking about the future and spark action, and ask if the arts can help us imagine a better future society and economy.
Attendees can expect to gain insights into how we can recharge our collective imagination and use it to achieve transformative social change.
