About the cluster
Futurity / Society / Action is a research cluster within the School of Art at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA). Bringing together established and early career researchers, including PhD students, it is open to everyone at every career stage and welcomes cross-disciplinary and cross-school members.
It is convened by Dr Kristin Mojsiewicz, Lecturer in the School of Art. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the 2020/21 academic year the cluster hosted artists Jennie Temple and Alexa Hare for the research presentation Research Now: Care and Crisis. The event focussed on news ways of disseminating practice through expanded collaborative networks in the city and its institutions, and maintaining creative communication remotely.
In previous academic years, talks linked to the cluster have included: Corin Sworn, Martin Herbert, Hannah Sawtell, Bisan Abu Eisheh, and a workshop on collaboration with Jason Bowman.
