This former Open Call and now Archive is actually about you and your imaginaries and perspectives on a future with a Universal Basic Income. However, you surely also want to know who we are and why we launched this project so that you see your work is in good hands.



We, Catalin and Raphael, the initiators of this project, are two young communication designers with a keen interest in collaborative design projects. We believe in the transformative potential of aesthetics and in a brave approach of communication. This project speaks from our hearts and is also our Master Thesis in ︎Social Design – Arts as Urban Innovation at the University of Applied Art in Vienna.

In the light of the coronavirus pandemic and progressing climate change, we urgently need new forms of security on a global level (!) that enable and empower us as individuals and communities to act and take our future into our own hands.
That is why we want to push forward and support an idea whose time has come. An idea that might enable us – when introduced in most parts of the world – to finally overcome extreme poverty and pave the ground to head for more just, free and sustainable ways of existence.
Since our own perspectives for a future are just fragments in an ocean of ideas we want to encourage you to contribute your imaginaries to this Open Call, so that we can collectively envision a future that has just not yet arrived, but is about to come – a future built on cooperation and solidarity.

Because, nobody is an island.

'No Man is an Island'

No man is an island entire of itself. 
every man is a piece of the continent. 
a part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
As well as if a promontory were,
As well as any manner of thy friends,
Or of thine own were.
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls.
It tolls for thee.

Meditation XVII 
Devotionas Upon Emergent Occasions
John Donne, 1624
