Future Ready Nashville

A DesignShop Event | December 17-19, 2014

America has reached a point where almost all problems can be solved, especially at the local level. Nashville has everything it needs to be Future Ready. This program invites selected activists to experience the DesignShop process, while launching our intentional process of making Nashville Future Ready.


Day 1 : Module 02 : Timeline

Nashville 100 Year Timeline

... in which participants populated a 220 year timeline by

  1. Placing events that occurred over the past 100 years;
  2. Viewing the "present" as a 20 year window so we could begin to see the patterns that helped us get to here and how we could move forward by design, not default, and then
  3. Working back from 2115 as IF the future had already occurred. 

This module served to create a backdrop for further exploration and design for  Future Ready Nashville.
