Description

The Future Lies Behind

Why does the past matter? In our fast-paced, future-facing world, what's the value and importance of studying history, and how can we do it better? And what part do our answers to these questions ultimately play in shaping times to come?

Join us for a public lecture as part of the 2017 State History Conference Hearts & Minds: Revaluing the Past. Friday’s program will conclude with a special public lecture as part of Open State. Dr Stuart Candy is a futurist who will explore with us the value of understanding our past when it comes to looking to the future.

This is a free public lecture as part of the 2017 State History Conference and Open State. 5.45pm for a 6.00pm start. Refreshments will be provided.



Dr Stuart Candy is leader of Foresight + Innovation for Arup Australasia, based in the Melbourne office. He brings to the role a decade of experience in futures practice across multiple sectors. He has worked on projects for the governments of Australia, Korea, Hawaii, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, and has also done foresight events or projects with General Electric, Autodesk, Frog Design, Institute for the Future, IDEO, and the TED conference in Long Beach, California. Stuart works at the intersection of design and foresight, and has an international reputation in the design of experiential futures – translating scenarios into immersive situations and tangible artefacts.
