I'm Isabelle Vuong, designer and facilitator
of foresight processes and art curator.
In my practice, I use imaginary futures to generate alternative ways of thinking and acting in the present.
The present is exactly where we need to start taking action if we want truly desirable and alternative futures to emerge.
Exercising our imagination about the future
reveals to us the potential of the present
for the futures we desire.
Let's develop together your skills
for thinking and imagining futures!
My goal is to help you unlock
your imaginative potential,
navigate uncertainty, expand
your understanding of the future
– in order to become more aware
of emergence and opportunities
in the current and future environment.
Together, we can create original and shared
futures that empower your organisation,
your community, or your institution.
In my practice, I draw on a recent orientation of futures research towards possible and speculative futures. Their openess help us capture the full potential of the present for desirable futures.
My approach combines foresight methods with narrative analysis and contributions from cultural theory, anthropology and sociology.
You may want my support for:
your vision and strategy development
your socio-ecological transformation process
your (citizen) participatory process
your conference or network meeting
your community empowerment program
your (continuous) education program
your team building exercise
I support you in thinking the future with:
Are you looking to renew
your imaginaries of
I can help you imagine original, alternative stories of the future that will offer you an experiential knowledge of the processes
of transformation in your field of activity.
You will then also begin to consider new courses of action today that will help move your organisation or community towards truly desirable and alternative futures.
Are you looking to enrich your competences in futures thinking?
I can help you capture different perspectives on the future and engage with them appropriately.
What you gain is a competence in future thinking that you can put to use in all circumstances.
Discover here my 'Introduction to future thinking' and some of my teachings at Universities or lectures in art contexts.
Are you looking to develop original futures for your organisation?
I support your organisation or community in its vision, strategy or socio-ecological process with foresight workshops that address assumptions about the future and how change occurs, so that together we develop your own transformative vision for the future.
In the socio-ecological field, I combine intersectional approaches such as the SDGs and the Doughnut Model with games and climate simulations. Check here how
I supported the Greater Geneva region with its socio-ecological action plan.
For visioning and strategy processes, I can also conduct studies: check here my positioning study for a future cultural infrastructure mandated by Nyon City & Region.

Each of our actions today is determined by our more or less conscious
visions of the future.
By questioning and renewing
our way of seeing the future,
we discover new ways of acting in the present.
