The issue will feature work by Haris A. Durani, Tiona McClodden, Elijah Moreau, Maya Mackrandilal, Alicia Reyes McNamara, Emma Uwejoma, Tunji Adeniyi-Jones and other writers, artists and talented young creatives. It will explore themes of climate, gender, exotification, borders, migration, futurism and all things speculative.
The future is the dream that sustains those who find no accommodation in the present. It is a realm in which we can imagine a world free from the things that prohibit or oppress us. In the future there are no borders, the climate is no longer an issue, gender is fluid, cyborg is a reality, egalitarianism is the norm and racism is a thing of the past. Delaying tactics often known as tomorrow, next week, the following month or maybe 2017 are too tainted by the realities of a world known as today to allow us to imagine these possibilities. So we offer 2043, a date far enough to have evaded the grasp of today and near enough that we may witness the realization of all our hopes for the future. We invite you to imagine with us!
