Lindsea K. Wilbur

Lindsea K. Wilbur, born and raised in the countryside of Hawai’i, is professionally curious about storytelling, the lived experience of governance, and emerging technology.
 
Following her inquiries into alternative governance systems, she’s gone from a network of underground tunnels beneath Paris to New York City’s MacArthur and Knight Foundation-funded Governance Lab to the deep playa at the Burning Man Art and Music Festival.
 
In August 2013, sponsored by the Institute for the Future, she took Governance Futures Lab’s Inventors Toolkit across America with the Millennial Trains Project. Exploring what it means to do human-centered political design, she used this hands-on tool to explore citizen systems and futures thinking in 7 cities and regions: the Bay Area, Salt Lake City, Denver, Omaha, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C.. She is helping design the next Millennial Trains Project journey, which will take place August 2014 and travel from Portland to New York City.
 
She also serves as Resident Futurist in the Planetary Collective, and is an affiliate at the Institute for the Future and the Hawai’i Research Center for Futures Studies. Find some of her writing at Open Gov Underground.
