Us in Flux
Us in Flux is a series of short stories and virtual gatherings that explore how we might reimagine and reorganize our communities in the face of transformative change.
In the summer of 2022, we’ll present a series of four stories and virtual events that envision civic experiments, considering possible collectives, systems, and activities to power the inclusive, thriving communities of the future.
The 2022 cycle of Us in Flux builds on our original series in 2020, when we published 11 stories and hosted 11 events amidst the initial wave of COVID-19 lockdowns. You can read those stories and watch those event videos here, and read analysis and commentary on Us in Flux in a special symposium section of the open-access journal SFRA Review.

The 2022 cycle of Us in Flux stories and events is made possible by generous support from John S. Martinson.
