Other Futures


Writer, media artist and activist Fran Ilich (Mexico) is building a different future with concrete projects: “Telling stories, designing habits and experiences. I believe we have the power to build little utopias that connect to the bigger schemes that change the world.”

He launched the Diego de la Vela Coffee Co-op, a blend of politics and coffee, planted by Zapatista farmers in Mexico and served to workers in New York. The project was financed by his ‘Spacebank’ (Don’t hate banks, become the banks!). Ilich is already giving us a taste of a different reality.
