What we do

The intersection of technology with society creates solutions but also intensifies social, political, and environmental crises. We work to enable individuals and communities to navigate these challenges and the impacts of digital technologies. Collaborating with an international network, we co-develop creative public interventions, exhibitions, resources, and training to advance understanding, build capacity, and promote critical thinking.

Public Interventions, exhibitions and experiencesExperiences designed to start conversations and promote critical thinking about technologies' impacts.
Training, Workshops and Masterclasses Our training sessions are designed to advance skills and create spaces for exchange and collaboration.
Research, resources and toolkitsOur creative resources provide evidence-based information and practical tools at the intersection of technology and society
