The Future is Present

THE FUTURE IS PRESENT banner (Pink letters spelling TFP with block prints of black roses on canvas over a blue and black background)

“We projected ourselves into a future in which we are loved absolutely and we rehearsed our lives there.”

The Future Is Present is a process and a practice, it’s a model for building community in a very small and incredibly powerful way. Led by artists Charlotte Brathwaite, Justin Hicks, Janani Balasubramanian, Sunder Ganglani, June Cross, and Alyssa Simmons, the project built a small community of Black and Indigenous young people and small community of young artists from Bard College* to spend seven weeks cultivating intimacy and discourse. Learn More
