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.
