"If, as the saying goes, 'politics is the art of the possible', it follows that we need arts in order to multiply possibilities." Bruno Latour, 2016

The Plurality University (U+) emerges from a belief that, in the face of today’s and tomorrow’s transitions, we will only find ways to act upon our futures by explicitly building on the power of imaginaries. Not in order to write a single grand narrative for the future, but rather to enable the creation and sharing of multiple stories and other imaginary productions, from every cardinal point in our multipolar world.

To this end, U+ intends to be an open, global, diverse collective that detects, connects, and federates people or organizations who mobilize the resources of the imaginary to broaden the scope of thinkable futures: activist artists and sci-fi authors, speculative designers, reflexive utopians, creative futures thinkers, engaged researchers, etc.

Come dream the Plurality University with us!
