We’re so excited to announce our Slow Factory Fellows! This year, we’re working with more than a dozen scholars, designers, activists, writers, and researchers to explore new ways of being and new ways of moving towards a just, equitable and sustainable future and processes.
Our Fellowship program evolved out of our previous work commissioning research and articles on pressing issues that inform our systemic change work within industry and external facing in Slow Journal. These research programs include work by Teju Adissa-Farar, Adib Dada and Charles El Hayek that can be found on Slow Journal.
The theme for the Class of 2023 is Systemic Change explored through various lenses including the need for reparations, degrowth, hyperlocal systems, fashion, media theory and so much more!
We’re so proud to support and fund the work of Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Disabled folk!
