Join the selected graduates as they present their respective work displayed as part of the Futures in the Making exhibition. This event allows you to hear first hand the thinking behind the diverse range of projects showcased and hear about what this group of graduates has in store next.

A team of three respondents representing each one of the ecologies "environmental", "mental" and "social" as explained by Felix Guattari in his well-known essay The Three Ecologies, will review the projects and give their feedback about these prospectives future proposals.
