Why Community and Education matter for Foresight professionals and Futuring creatives

Community Globe

The Trend Atelier Community and School exists because there’s a gap between learning future foresight methodologies and implementing them with visionary thinking.

There is also a deep need to harness future trend forecasting for the greater good.

We support global members of the foresight community and futuring creatives by providing access to classes, kinship, knowledge and insights.

Trend Atelier Community group

Why the name Trend Atelier? Atelier : an artist's or designer's studio or workroom. Trend: a general movement.

We are here to challenge, experiment with and democratise the field of futures in the creative industries, in a fast changing world. We also aim to question our approach to 'new trends' and innovations, and whose future are we putting forth?

The time is now to implement future foresight mindfully and implement big picture and purpose driven futures thinking.

The Community is reopening soon! Be sure to join the waiting list so you don’t miss out.

Now more than ever there is an ethical responsibility we have to question how things are made and conceptualized for their long term life for generations ahead.

In their own words

Our best ambassadors are the students who have benefited both professionally and personally from our courses and community.
