Many well-established ideas about the future exist already, related to climate crisis, tech, and increasing social differences. Is this all that the future has in store for us, or are there alternatives?

In this exhibition, you move in and out of different imagined scenarios created by people living in the east end of downtown Oslo (Gamlebyen, Tøyen, Grønland, etc.). What if sea levels rise by 70 meters? What if Tøyen becomes the new cultural and economic hub of Oslo? What if the people take back the power from private investors, and develop the city the way they want?

In the exhibition, you can partake in fun future workshops and engage in activities such as designing a future smart city, play around with future language, or build a new city district.
