Mission Statement

The Future Left is a collective in the intersection of politics, art, and theory, seeking to foster radical change in contemporary culture. We believe in the critical importance of discourse as a means to resonant change. We facilitate education and promote collaboration among like-minded activists, theoreticians, and artists, knowing that solving the future is only possible through collectively rethinking our structural institutions. As a resource of information and tool for progressivism we provide critical support for intentional communities oriented through meaningful research and action. We believe exploring new modalities of thought is catalytic to socio-political growth during our shifting and precarious technological epoch. Through a multifaceted program of media, community outreach, lectures, and workshops we aim to provide education and discussion as accessible as possible to a diverse audience.
