We publish a wide range of stories on a weekly basis, including articles and essays produced by fellowship participants, transcripted lectures, and original pieces by the Futuress team, often in collaboration with partner organizations.


We offer a lively monthly program of online workshops, lectures, panel discussions, and networking events around the politics of design.


Our authors and lecturers come from a globally-dispersed community of mostly womxn and non-binary designers, writers, journalists, editors, researchers, educators, artists, activists, and beyond.

Futuress is committed to democratizing design education and discourse, and depends on contributions from you—our beloved community! If you have the financial capacity, please consider donating to support our efforts to keep steering discussions around feminism, design and politics. All of our published content is free and accessible to all, and so are our learning programs and fellowships that are directed at participants from marginalized backgrounds. Your donation goes directly into programming, commissioning, and our overall organizational costs to keep Futuress open for all. Every little bit helps, so please consider donating today!
