Resources & Inspiration

The resources guiding our inspiration and creation of the FutureMaking workshop

Book List

By reading these books before the FutureMaking workshop you’ll find yourself more in tune with the language and concepts we’ll be presenting. If you don’t have time to get through the whole list, they’ll still be worthy reads after the workshop and may help solidify the concepts discussed.
