CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: Radical Creativities Issue #1


With Radical Creativities, we seek to provide a platform for the stories and experiences of people and organisations which consider the cultural as necessary to achieve the just and equitable transformation of communities, manifesting this ambition through action. Radical Creativities will welcome diverse voices from all backgrounds, embracing the expressive use of different languages and media. Radical Creativities proudly embraces plurality as the only way to understand the complexity that surrounds us, to make it our own and to respect it with our actions. In the project’s name, we use ‘Creativity’ in the plural, emphasising the need to legitimise different practices and histories, bringing them together and letting them mutually contaminate each other. Academic research, cultural practice and art are not three separate worlds, but rather different ways to interpret, understand and assimilate the same reality. Through these three lenses, we explore who we are as communities across time and space, in permanent transition


Radical Creativities focuses on the intersection between cultural research and practice, creating a new space for knowledge production. We base our actions on the principle of culture as a transformative agent, thereby recognising art, cultural programming and research as powerful tools for societal transformation. We focus on cultural practices that lead or support societal transitions, that is to say, cultural and creative actions that are grounded in today’s challenges while championing sustainable human development. 


Radical Creativities seeks concrete proposals on how to generate radical and sustainable transformation, focusing on how artists, entrepreneurs, institutions and cultural workers can address global challenges and display leadership, contributing to the construction of altruist economies and social systems.


Radical Creativities accepts contributions related to all forms of cultural and creative expression and opens the door to a new way of conceiving scientific journals and disseminating knowledge. Together with the traditional format of academic papers, Radical Creativities accepts contributions expressed in all cultural languages (audiovisual, music, performing arts, etc.) recognising the act of producing culture as knowledge creating in itself and welcoming artists and creatives into our community.
