A written provocation that marks the 21st Anniversary of the founding of the UK-based arts organisation, Deveron Arts. The provocation uses the method of back-casting, requiring its respondents to design the future organisation that may replace Deveron Arts in 21 years. There are sixteen questions accompanied by tasks as if the respondent has no agency to intervene, re-determine, re-imagine or re-purpose. The provocation demands a detailed scoping of a future that hopes to reveal the processes and forces of current conditions, which if sustained without intervention, may concur with forms of administration, organisation and management that are oppositional to social practice and its imaginary possibilities.
