About Other Futures

Other Futures is a new multidisciplinary online and offline platform for thinkers and builders of other futures. For the first time in the history of science fiction makers and thinkers from different disciplines and different parts of the world will explore the potentialities of the genre together with the public. The first edition of the Other Futures will focus on non-Western science fiction. Other Futures will be a meeting point for sharing new insights about how we want to envision and build our future. The platform uses science fiction not just to reflect upon the future but also as a tool of empowerment in order to build a new and better world.

Vision and mission

Mouflon Foundation devotes itself exclusively to the realization of Other Futures – Exploring New Perspectives through Science Fiction, the new multidisciplinary online and offline platform for people from all disciplines from everywhere in the world who think about and help shape the future, aimed at a wide and varied audience.
