Year 8 Art Excellence - Creative young minds inventing their own futures

100 FUTURES, NOW

Future thinking is an exciting branch of contemporary art and design. Students in year 8 are entering a century that is still open to all possible futures. Their lives and personal milestones will keep pace with the adventure of the 21st century. Like other young people they will be responsible for rethinking and reinventing every aspect of their lives and environment to manage personal and communal futures.

100 FUTURES, NOW involves creative students working in collaboration with artists and designers to visualize amazing futures and communicate their vision through art and design.

100 FUTURES, NOW uses imaginative scenarios as stepping off points for inquiry.

Creative thinking

Future challenges won’t be one-dimensional, so students in this program will learn to connect apparently unrelated ideas, build bridges between disciplines, collaborate, think flexibly and embrace uncertainty. These are all key 21st century skills identified in National Curriculum and international best practice.

Partners and supporters

This program, like Senior Art and Design Excellence, will be supported by artists’ and designer residencies, and by the mentorship of key partners: The QUT Faculty of Creative Industries, Griffith University and Queensland College of Art’s Design Futures program.

Artists and designers involved in the program

Artists who work with ideas ranging over science, bio-ethics, biodiversity, behavior and ethics, ambient sound, urbanism, food, clothes and fashion.
