What if every neighbourhood had a space for people to share stories and imagine futures?
The ability to imagine different futures is at the heart of democracy, social action and making change. Only once we can envision alternatives to the status quo can we take action to bring them to life. We wanted to explore - what can a physical space look like for a neighbourhood to collectively imagine its futures?
So we took over a local shop front in Poplar, London for 6 weeks to trial our imagination HQ. We wanted to engage people of all generations in exploring both the history and possible futures of the local area.
