NOW!topia, an online exhibition

Kaleido would like to invite you to the online exhibition NOW!topia.

The exhibition aims to envision alternative and positive futures for Planet Earth since we believe the omnipresent growth narrative of our current economies cannot sustain our planet. Since we believe change starts with our own imagination, we invited artists to contribute to the exhibition, and therefore to the co-creation of a new mindset.
