Imagine a place that's a lot like Earth...

we'll call it planet B

During the monthly planet B meetings, scientists, artists and citizens are invited to have a dialogue about the social and ecological challenges of our time.

The starting point of each meeting is the artistic work in progress of artists whose research is focused on these challenges. Our guest for meetup #9 will be Femke Herregraven. She is currently working on her Creator Doctus programme (CrD), for which planet B's Chris Julien is one of the supervisors. Herregraven's research project The Evacuated focuses on the concept of potential, future disasters and how those moments can be productive in navigating our current biological, political and technological ecosystem. This is an online meetup.

About planet B
Waag is developing planet B, a mission to recolonise planet Earth based on a narrative of DIY expeditions to a fictional planet. Planet B offers scientists, artists and citizens a 'greenfields' to develop symbolic and material responses to the social and ecological challenges facing us. It expresses an ethos and possible aesthetics for doing things right in the Anthropocene era.

If we can imagine a planet B that is sustainable and inclusive, what does that mean for our world, and our future here on planet Earth?
