Training For The Future, Cape Town iteration

Training For The Future

From the website: Training for the Future is a utopian training camp where audiences are turned into trainees to pre-enact alternative scenarios and reclaim the means of production of the future. Due to the coronavirus pandemic the 2021 edition has a decentralized form, with trainings taking place in parallel across the world: acting collectively, even when apart. Register directly at each training in the program below.

Cape Town, Zayaan Khan

Our inherited ways of knowing have come through many channels, informing how we navigate our survival in the places we reside. The AncientFutures will exercise in the collection of plants and seeds, land and sea, explore their ties to our collective memory and ecology through discussion, and join in collective exercises from cooking to an introduction to fibers. Training for the AncientFutures will open up the peripheries, asking particular questions to gain traction for what may lie in the in-betweens; How much of our survivorship is based on financialized means and systems? How may we unhinge our consumption from neoliberalism and extractive natures towards something sovereign that nourishes our creativity? How may creativity encourage our survival?

Each TFTF iteration created a Manual of their work to be published and shared in the coming months.
