Global Futures is an interdisciplinary arts and humanities initiative for critical inquiry, pedagogical innovation, and social justice. The manifold and accelerating crisis of the current historical moment presents unique challenges that require creative new forms of research and collective action. The Global Futures Initiative brings together artists, activists, organizers, and scholars to creatively envision new social possibilities that connect community-based engagement and global movements for social transformation and planetary futurity. 

Lucy Lippard is an internationally known writer, activist, and curator. She has authored twenty-two books, has curated more than fifty major exhibitions, and holds nine honorary degrees. Lippard is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts grants. She lives in New Mexico.
