Why Community and Kinship matter for Future Trend Forecasters & Creatives

Veronica Fossa quote

Our community exists to democratise future trend forecasting methods, futuristic insights and thought provoking approaches. We understand design and future foresight is about relationships.

As a collective, we seek out the edges and adjacent views, because we see the biggest innovation as philosophical. For us, the lab is everywhere.

In our subscription based online space, we deepen our work on an ongoing basis with curated events, future insights, workshops, tools and resources, blending innovation, philosophies & kinship.

Trend Atelier Community group

Month after month, the futuring concepts and methods fleshed out together inform impact-led strategies for our collective of forecasters, strategists, innovators, designers, students, academics and creatives around the globe.  

The development of our members' philosophical and strategic approaches is paramount to our values and run side by side.

We provide blueprints around values, mission, development and feedback. The exchanges we foster lead to collaborations, showcases, feedback, new horizons and attentive support.

The Community accepts new members only once a year, so be sure to join the waiting list so you don’t miss out.

In their own words

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

"I've really enjoyed being in the community because there's not just designerS, there ARE trend forecasters, teachers different creatives. we're sharing our thoughts AND I love hearing the different perspectives. it gives me an opportunity to challenge and question myself. as a designer you're rushed to do things and so your research kind of goes to the wayside. so being part of a community reminds me TO do more careful, thoughtful research, IT will be better for my clients and I love going to the website and reading links from people and finding new ideas."

"I really like the idea this is democratic and accessible. People can also contribute with insights and it is a very collaborative platform. So being part of the community I was introduced to a lot of concepts I wasn’t familiar with. What I really love about it is also that it is very broad in terms of topics we cover. As trend forecasters, we are also curators of our own worLd, ambassadors of the type of world we want to see."

"That is the amazing thing about the community it’s that co-created conversation. It opens up new ways of thinking and doing. We have critical conversations and come up with solutions. And I think for me it is a really special place because it feels safe to take risks and have these open conversations you really want to have about making a positive change in what you do."

I discovered the Trend Atelier Community during the Covid winter of 2020, and it was an incredibly inspiring place of talks and presentations during a difficult period. The presentations are innovative and thought-provoking, and the community is full of engaged and intelligent individuals.
