IMAGINE sets out to research the power of cultural imaginaries of sustainable futures. We understand imaginaries as complex networks of ideas, ideologies, utopias, dreams and knowledge that are spun between actors within and between cultural contexts. By unpacking and disentangling different ways of imagining the future, IMAGINE will produce new knowledge about the dominant imaginaries of the present that project our sustainable future. In doing so, we aim to create a democratic space for discussing controversies open to public dialogue and impact current practices.
