How can artists help us vision the future by illustrating the principles, processes, or practices of a just world, where the complexities between living organisms, their physical environment, and all their interrelationships represent harmony, sustainability, justice and freedom? What are the key elements of these new ecosystems for people and planet, markets and movements? What would such a world look like from the perspective of 21st Century artists as catalysts for new futurities and planetary change?
