Our areas of research: 2018–2021
During the next 3 years, we are focusing our research on three broad and strategic areas aligned with our 2050 mission, using annual themes approach to explore the post-technological futures of everything in creative, collaborative and experimental ways.
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
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.
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.
