Our Futuress team has gone through some c-c-c-c-changes yet again! Sadly, our beloved powerhouse Cherry-Ann Davis has left Futuress to focus on her own research. Cherry has been part of Futuress almost since its inception: first as a participant of the first Troublemakers Class of 2020, and then as a crucial part of the team co-facilitating workshops and helping our fellows craft their texts—always with her joyful energy, sharp wit, and fierce grit. She will be sorely missed! We do, however, have some happy news as well—Franca López Barbera will be our new Associate Editor, shaping and refining our texts for publication with her sharp eye and love for commas. Franca is an Argentinian designer and researcher based in Berlin, and she, too, joined Futuress as a fellow in the Troublemakers Class of 2020. Since then, she has been giving lectures and publishing texts on Futuress, exploring the intersection between nature, coloniality, and ethics.
