BIOGRAPHY

Monika Bielskyte is a futures researcher, who has been  on a decade-long nomadic journey engaging with future emergence in 90+ countries. As a futurist and futures designer, Monika consults on and prototypes culturally expansive, socially and environmentally engaged future world designs for the media industry, technology companies, and cities/countries. With expertise in the immersive media space (XR/AI/UX) and edutainment, her work consists in connecting bleeding edge technological innovation with creative visions that explore the relationship between speculative science fiction narratives (Dystopias, Utopias, &, most specifically, Protopias) & the unfolding Global Futures.

Most recently, Monika has been working on @ProtopiaFutures – a platform for research & creative collaborations challenging & offering alternatives to dystopian/utopian stereotypes. Protopia explores visions of radically hopeful & inclusive futures centering Queer, Indigenous, Disability Justice & previously marginalized cultural perspectives in the context of futurism & foresight work. The framework of Protopia has been shaped by the urgent need for expanded futures literacy, to combat the rise of disinformation in the coming age of the increasingly immersive media.
