Arctic Futurism

Earthlings, humans specifically, have a rich culture of diversity and imagination with narrative and social interaction at its core. Yet, most mainstream media and entertainment tells a monocultural story with rather dystopian visions of the future. In recent years, movements like Hopepunk and Solarpunk as well as technological advancements, are diversifying our visions and design fiction, showing a range of possibilities for positive change with technology and biology in balance.

Playcentric Studios is shaping a style of Nordic Futurism, Arctic Futurism specifically, based on the geology and past and future mythologies of the diverse lands and peoples in the North. Scenarios based on diversity and not monoculture, a philosophical animism respecting the spirits of all beings, simplifying global connections and access to resources for all beings no matter physical or social abilities.

Diversity and inclusion, as well as individual freedom of expression is at the core of our fictive works, as well as the organization and its events that are always accessible. Check out our lab The Collaboratory for examples of the previous work we have done in this sphere.
