Futures Without Guns
A multimedia speculative art exhibition investigating gun violence as a health equity issue
Nine artists working in a variety of mediums create new artworks and design propositions envisioning the possibilities for a future free from gun violence. With a focus on Philadelphia, the project invites community members affected by gun violence to share their experiences and, in several instances, inform the artists’ processes.
The resulting group exhibition draws on futures thinking and speculative design methods to consider multiple perspectives on and potential solutions to this complex issue and to amplify the role of art in advancing societal change.
