Slam Jam and 2050+'s "Circle" Think Tank Platform Wants to Know What You Have to Say
Freely discuss topics on health, green, people, and waste to start conversations that change the world for the better.
Slam Jam is more than just a boutique or prolific collaborator, it’s a gateway for thought-provoking experiments and conversation starters. For example, its (Un)corporate Uniforms collection was designed for link-minded people as a sort of concept of unity, while its work at Reference Festival will present the inaugural Reference Prize, celebrating the next generation of creatives by giving them support during a time of uncertainty. Now, Slam Jam continues to broaden its horizons (and ours) with its latest partnership and project, teaming up with fellow Milan-based multidisciplinary agency 2050+ for what it calls “Circle.”
“Circle” is a digital think tank, giving “voice to the most pressing issues of our time, with an eye on multiculturalism and the changed climate regime.” With this in mind, Slam Jam and 2050+ want us to have conversations, they want us to think about the impacts of our current world and ignite positive, hard-hitting change. Looking in at its own surroundings of Milan, the duo references climate change, migration, mass tourism, urban development, and other aspects of Milan’s culture as driving points of thought-provoking conversation.
These talking points are broadened out more widely into pillars of conversation, namely health, green, people, and waste. This will all be discussed in editorial “pills” (essentially engaging content in forms such as performative lectures, voice
memos, digital animations, and speculative graphics) that will run from now until the middle of February. From there, Slam Jam and 2050+ will work alongside a cohort of contributors in fields including architecture, urbanism, and design to discuss new ways of how we can interact with space, materials, and communities.
In short, “Circle” will “not only provide key information, but also offer a platform for exchanging ideas and catalyzing collective participation.” If you’re interested in starting and engaging in the conversation, reflecting on yourself and the world around us with the hope of positive change, then head over to Slam Jam’s dedicated “Circle” platform site now.
