Current AusForesight Cafes
Organisers: Marcus Bussey and Steve Gould
Organiser: Marcus Barber
Organiser: Anita Kelleher
Activities: AusForesight Perth builds on the Foresight Cafe sessions hosted by Designer Futures from 2003. With an increasing demand in Perth for management development programs in Applied Foresight and Transformational Foresight, and a government with a future focus, visitors to the Cafe sessions are primarily professionals and creatives with an interest in learning new methods for thinking about and creating the future. Recent additions to the Perth futures network are Brian Henke (ex Germany and US) and Adam Jorlen (ex Sweden). AusForesight and Adam’s group, Enkel, will be holding combined events, educational forums, maker labs and, of course, eating and drinking sessions in Fremantle.
Organisers: Hugh Pattinson and Tim Mansfield
