Paisley is a member of the World Building Institute.
Paisley designed and led "Feminist Futures" at the Women's Center for Creative Work with Designer Caitlin Conlen. Feminist Futures is an on-going collaborative project and world building workshop.
The project harnesses the power of the collaborative imagination of our community by envisioning and building a distant feminist future.
She developed the children’s component of the USC/ 5D Institute "Science of Fiction" World Building conference in 2013 and 2014, in which kids developed and built future story worlds out of physical and virtual materials.
The 5D conference brings together leading futurists and innovative storytellers together from across the globe to imagine the future, both in fiction and with real world applications.
