Hi!

I'm Isabelle Vuong, designer and facilitator
of foresight processes and art curator.

In my practice, I use the ability of future imaginaries to reveal the full potential of the present.
 

Exercising our imagination for diverse futures

opens us to alternative horizons and ways of 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.

Let's develop together your skills
for thinking and imagining futures!

My Approach

Your needs

In my practice, I draw on a recent orientation of foresight 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 exercice  

I offer teaching sessions (Introduction: (Re)thinking the future), lectures, tailored workshops (Futures Literacy, Myths of the future) and foresight processes to support you

in thinking the future.

Are  you  looking  to  renew

your imaginaries of

the future?

I can help you imagine original and
alternative stories of the future that will offer you 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 where I have taught and my interactive 'Introduction to future thinking', which offers basic principles of foresight and reflects on western concepts and myths of the future.

Are you looking to develop original futures?

I support you with the development of your institutional strategy, your governance process or your ecological transition plan by designing foresight workshops according to your needs.

I accompany authorities and institutions in their ecological and socio-cultural transformation processes. Taking an intersectional perspective, I use approaches such as the Doughnut model (Kate Raworth) and the SDG, together with interactive games and climate scenarios simulations.

My aim is to support you in unleashing
your imaginative potential,
navigating uncertainty, expanding
your understanding of the future
– in order to become more aware
of emergence and opportunities
in the current and future environnement.


Together, we can create original and shared
futures that empower your organisation,
your community, or your (public) institution.

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.
