Special Project: IAM x UAL Futures Studio

Presented by IAM x UAL Futures

Using utopias as a provocative tool to invent new futures in the internet age, 10 students from UAL developed five linked, utopian concepts or prototypes for services, products or artefacts that might exist in a not-too-distant future as part of the inaugural UAL Futures Studio.

IAM helped launch the project, with teams responding to each research theme of IAM Weekend 17 and working with learning partners Kickstarter, Superflux, Hanno, The Future Laboratory, It’s Nice That and The Pop Up Agency throughout the process. Stay tuned as the results will be shared at IAM Weekend 17!

What if we use utopias as a verb?

For IAM Weekend 17 we will go deeper into the meaning of utopias, with imagination and skepticism, understanding how they can evolve beyond contemporary dreams and help us navigate the uncertainty of our times.

The main stage will feature 30+ speakers distributed in 5 sessions (single-track conference format) plus 10+ workshops led by our learning partners developing the key insights from the talks. Our serendipitous agenda will also include several side-events including parties, dinners, screenings, special projects and installations.
