present futures library

April 20 – 23, 2017

The Present Futures Library invites artists, administrator, and other cultural practitioners to contribute art, writing, research, and so forth, concerning strategies for making change, from practical to experimental. The first iteration of this library will be presented in a gallery space at Open Engagement in Chicago, while a digital version will exist on our website during the conference (forthcoming).

The Present Futures Library encourages visitors to share, contribute, and take resources that connects to a larger discourse around methodologies for self-preservation, self-determination, and collective organizing.
