Major on-going projects

The Center for Arts, Design, and Social Research 

Co-founded in 2016, The Center for Arts, Design, and Social Research (CAD+SR) is an artist-led not for profit educational corporation based in Boston, Massachusetts. The Center supports individual fellows and their collaborative research projects, convenes workshops and residencies, sponsors publications, and organizes exhibitions and other events. Center programs are framed by a commitment to new forms of globally-attuned diversity, connecting artists from all regions of the world to other artists, activists, scholars, and researchers. The resulting projects are experiments in form and intent that address issues of wide significance, yet are linked to specific social and political contexts. CAD+SR is founded on the principle that speculative creative work is an essential foundation for building sustainable, interdependent, and equitable planetary cultures.
