In the current climate emergency, FUTURES IN PROGRESS aims to create, along with the global creative community, a new paradigm between humankind and nature based on equality and love.
FUTURES IN PROGRESS design contemporary eco-narratives for brands, institutions and the creative community that are pursuing environmental progress, cultural resonance and planetary wellbeing. Our studio practise has three core activities: Atelier, Academy & Observatory.
FUTURES IN PROGRESS is based in Barcelona and was founded by Ainara Murillo and Xavi Barberà, partners in life and work.
It’s time to blur the dichotomy between nature and culture. The scientific, rational approach is not enough to address the overwhelming climate challenge we are facing. That’s why we believe contemporary culture must play a proactive role and become a dynamic and innovative means of collective mobilisation to raise consciousness and awareness.
We believe that creative talent can and should generate critical discourses and aesthetic systems that foster a profound attachment to nature and produce a beautiful, encouraging and creative ecological future.
We envision a future where humankind will no longer be the centre of everything happening on planet Earth, but rather another element in the political framework Nature will become. We understand that our progress as a society is measured by the ability we have to build a natural environment from a cultural perspective that is entirely of its time.
