Open call Spaceship Earth

With the open call Spaceship Earth we invite artists, designers and visual storytellers to imagine the most daring, most promising, most inspiring new ideas about the changing relationship between humans, nature and technology. We challenge them to dream of a more inclusive and sustainable world. A world in which biology and technology merge. A world in which humans and planet earth enter a new evolutionary phase. A world worth living in.
