Future Scenarios is a multi platform project by Lena Dobrowolska & Teo Ormond-Skeaping. The work comprises of a three channel artist film, photographic prints, speculative future news papers and magazines and research.
The project explores the themes of vulnerability to, and responsibility for climate change, and the role that narrative plays in shaping our future. Through collaboration with leading climate change researchers in the Global South and the UK we have learnt how the narrative of vulnerability that once surrounded the nations most vulnerable to climate change has developed into a narrative of resilience and adaptation as they emerge as leaders in work to avert a climate catastrophe.
Working with scenarios thinking we have documented climate change exacerbated phenomena and climate solutions that offer us glimpses of the future with the intention of imagining difficult and improving future scenarios.
Working in Lao PDR, Bangladesh, Nepal, The UK, The U.S. and Uganda we have investigated scenarios of climate induced migration, hurricanes, sea level rise, conflict, heat and water stress and food security in locations that are vulnerable to climate change and those which are historically responsible for green house gas emissions.
The project has been supported by Culture and Climate Change, The Jerwood Charitable Foundation, The University of Sheffield, The Open University, The Inernational Centre for Climate Chnage and Development (ICCCAD), The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Jesuit Refugee Services Uganda (JRS), The Polish Mistry of Culture, and The Ashden Trust.
