Deadline: 15 December 2022.
The Social Fiction Design Competition seeks social fiction that is original and thought-provoking, opening our eyes to new possibilities for living in a revolutionary, sustainable, and equitable world.
A unique and inventive concept is social fiction. The creation of concepts, notions, or methods that have an impact on social context referred to as social fiction. The creation of the society, the economy, and the planet we want to live in will be made possible if we begin to think about social fiction in the same way that we do science fiction. If we can conceive anything, reality will eventually follow.
The theme of the Social Fiction Design Competition 2023 is: “Imagine the Life of a Young Person in the World of 2050.”
This is a forum that encourages people all over the world to envisage the kind of society we want to live in—one that is free from the social and environmental injustices that afflict our communities. And our imaginations are where it all begins.
