The co-enquiry is a workshop format developed to challenge and question participants notions of what makes a future, in turn developing new preferable futures worth spreading.

We use design as an exploratory tool, in order to depict the possibilities associated with new and emerging technologies. Through an entanglement of narratives we paint a picture of a tomorrow, imagining objects, artefacts and systems starting from the very small and peculiar and reaching towards a broader bigger picture. In doing so we will critique the cultural and social implications of these aspirations, whilst reflecting heavily on the present status quo.

VVFA methodology articulates 2 approaches: – 1. Collaborative world creation, as an inspirational strategy established around scientific, social and ethical questioning. – 2. Reverse archeology, or the embodiment of narratives into designed artefacts, services, and other design interventions.
