Design consultancy Quicksand imagine what the future of humanitarian aid will look like in the face of societal and climate change in India

In the face of catastrophic climate change, how will humanitarian aid transform and adapt. This immersive adventure takes place across India, to imagine the everyday objects, services and experiences of humanitarian aid workers in the year 2035.

HUM.2035 is a travelling exhibit on the future of humanitarian work conceived by Indian creative practice Quicksand in collaboration with Tandem Research, Barbican and Humanitarian Leadership Academy. The project presents experiences designed though a juxtaposition of critical research and speculative design by STBY (London-Amsterdam), Hetco (London), National Institute of Design (India) and several academics, artists and technologists.

Supported by the British Council.
