How to Predict the Future? Invent It

The Dartmouth Centers Forum recently announced that it would provide mini-grants of up to $2,000 to support collaborative programming related to this year’s theme of “Envisioning the World We Want.” Proposals are due Feb. 11.

Each year, the Dartmouth Centers Forum, an alliance of 17 campus-based institutes, programs, and centers, chooses a theme to serve as a unifying framework for programming sponsored by its various participating organizations. 
 
In conjunction with Dartmouth’s 250th anniversary, the Dartmouth Centers Forum recently announced that it would provide mini-grants of up to $2,000 to support collaborative events, including workshops, discussions, panels, and performances related to this year’s theme of “Envisioning the World We Want.” The words of computing pioneer Alan Kay serve as the initiative’s inspiration: “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”
 
The selection committee hopes to attract proposals that will cultivate dialogue across campus and demonstrate collaboration between groups. Proposals are due by Monday, Feb. 11. The Dartmouth Centers Forum will announce the winning proposals on Monday, March 4.
