The impactmania program Human Mind and Migration in collaboration with the Neuroscience Research Institute; Department of Religious Studies; and Art, Design & Architecture Museum (UCSB) consists of an interdisciplinary internship program and global partners to deliver a suite of interviews, interactive presentations, and performances.
Considering the present historical moment and its sociopolitical and environmental cocktail of issues related to migration—from the consequences of climate change to public policymaking such as forest fires; rising housing prices; and ongoing threats of human warfare—it is more urgent than ever to provide platforms for meaningful broad-base engagement to take place. We want to help translate and bring into sharper view the rich insights and knowledge being produced in more remote corners of the intellectual/artistic landscape, so that the 7 billion homo sapiens presently living (and migrating) on earth can imagine the most optimal and realistic future for themselves and the planet.
