Goldsmiths, University of London,
Professor Stuart Hall Building, Rm LG02

Dig deep into the joyful world of virtual reality, comic book artists, filmmakers, photographers, illustrators and collectives who help build a better, and more imaginative, world – in all its technicoloured glory.
Meet the creators fighting for a better future: 

  • British artist Marcus Lyon uses portraiture, oral histories, multi-layered exploration and DNA analysis to reveal the beauty and diversity of identities in Brazil, Germany and Detroit.
  • Liz Corbin created Materiom to collectively open source recipes from nature for a more sustainable materials and design future. Enter the culinary world of the circular design expert. 
  • Dan Baron Cohen has spent 20+ years co-creating youth-led collectives in the Amazon to transform lives through creative performance and production, remaking and protecting the founding community of the region.
  • With Little Inventors, Dominic Wilcox brings crayon drawings to life as real gadgets – inspiring kids to keep believing that the only real limit is their imagination.
