Experiences from masterclass participants

"Een meesterlijke Masterclass waarin - tot mijn grote opluchting - toekomst scenario’s worden gegenereerd vanuit een grondig en kritisch historisch besef. Inspirerend en intelligent."

Casper Oudshoorn trainingsacteur

"De masterclass voelde als een onvergetelijke tijdreis, waarbij je met veel aangedragen voorbeelden en referenties leert om zinnig over toekomsten na te denken. Een absolute aanrader voor iedereen die verder kijkt en denkt dan vandaag!"

Stef Bogaerds stedenbouwkundige
"Miles away from academic and dry intellectual theorising. Pragmatic and direct, and so fascinating!"
Theatermaker #5/2017 (magazine review)

To connect the dots,
get the long view

Often organizations are forced into short-term decision making, while our time of transition and disruption requires long-term thinking, relevant information and the ability to connect the dots.

We offer you a range of products and services —from briefings and future scenario's to bespoke consultancy— that can empower you to make the right decisions, reduce uncertainty, and make you feel confident and inspired for the future.

How to make a sustainable and inclusive society?

Monnik was founded by Christian Fruneaux and Edwin Gardner out of a desire to go beyond critiquing the status quo, and towards articulating viable proposals for a sustainable and inclusive world. Our futurology is born out understanding the world both holistically and analytically, and a sense of urgency to change it for the better.

Explore tomorrow through worldbuilding and storytelling

Join us in developing speculative stories and worlds that enable you to explore the forces that will shape the experience of your clients, employees and stakeholders tomorrow.

Worldbuilding is a science fiction technique for creating comprehensive, rich and immersive worlds. The power of this approach reaches beyond telling of stories. Since science fiction worldbuilders are able to preconceives what is later materialized through design and innovation.

How to investigate the unknowable?

Because the future is the only place that cannot be measured, calculated, probed or scanned, we need all the knowledge, imagination and vision to make it come to life. In our lab we explore new research methods, experimental storytelling techniques, and multi-disciplinary collaborations.
