Current Projects

In addition to its Collaboratory, the Future Imagination Fund (FIF) also supports collaborative, interdisciplinary projects aligning with our mission to harness the power of imagination to create a more beautiful and equitable future.

At this time, current FIF projects include:

*This Is Not A Drill*: Technology, Art, and the Climate Emergency

Program Director: Mona Sloane (2020 FIC Fellow)

DEADLINE TO APPLY: July 30, 2021

*This Is Not A Drill* is a faculty working group on technology, the climate emergency, and creative practice that will collaboratively develop a new public pedagogy and explore designs that dismantle the harmful hierarchies created between human/non-human and culture/nature, and that reorient us towards sustainment, maintenance and care for each other and for the planet.

Faculty fellows will receive a $10,000 research fund for their project for FY 2022.
