Time travel to the future…

14:03 by Cornelius Holtorf

For the first time in the history of Kalmar Country Museum’s work with the time travel method, two groups of participants have been travelling to the year 2068, discussing future heritage and associated key questions about the present. This is one of a series of development projects commissioned by the UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures.

Soon we will not only receive a full report about the lessons learned, but there will also be a short film documenting how a school class travelled to the future (and back). For now, read more in the report in the local newspaper Östra Småland and on the regional news site of Swedish Television.

In 2017, Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, was awarded a UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures. This is one of eight Chairs in Sweden, and the only one within the cultural sector. Cornelius Holtorf, holder of the UNESCO Chair, alongside his team, will continue to generate ideas through this forum.
