Ecosystems

How can we use the internet to rethink our relationship with the planet and everything else inside and around it?

Our focus will be in the edges, intersections and interconnections of migration, climate justice, cities & citizenships

Learning

How can we embrace critical, conscious and post-binary attitudes in knowledge-sharing and consumption experiences?

Our focus will be in the edges, intersections and interconnections of cultural innovation, arts & design education, digital/tech/media literacy.

Imaginations

How can we empower ourselves and others to redistribute power using inclusive, decolonised and plural narratives about what happens next?

Our focus will be in the edges, intersections and interconnections of creative economies, the futures of the futures, media, perceptions & realities.
