Future Perfect: A Postcapitalist Experience is a live group choose-your-own-adventure in which participants take on the functions of neighborhood council members in an envisioned society, called Tomorrowland. Confronted with a series of occasions and emergency situations developed by emerging automation and environment modification, councils must discuss and vote on the policy choices that (they hope!) will move their society into an ideal future. Tomorrowland’s story will unfold over a twenty-year duration, with guest looks by unique interest lobbyists and local specialists including context and insight to these complicated subjects. What will be the future of Tomorrowland? It’s up to you!
