How can we dream of a world that is ecologically just and rooted in equity for all human and nonhuman life? The Creativity Lab offers a space where visitors can consider their relationship to the environments they inhabit through activities and resources designed by artists and community organizations.

Investing in Futures is a creative framework that helps you imagine a world you want to live in and form a new perspective on today. At the heart of the framework is a deck of playing cards to use as a starting point for worldbuilding. The project was designed by artist/educators Sarah Rothberg and Marina Zurkow, who continue to offer workshops using Investing in Futures as the centerpiece for facilitated group co-imagination and discussion.
