CREATING AN OPEN SYSTEM

The 2020 Indeterminacy Festival is focusing on envisioning a new social structure  that orients the individual around environmental science.

The festival seeks to forward a new politics and propose new strategies for seeking individual freedom and generating collective action, taking to heart David Lapoujade’s dictum that "at the heart of the human there is nothing human." By stepping outside of the human paradigm and stepping into an alternate one that doesn't place humans at the center, what might innovation look like?
