52 Resident Thinkers

From the moment the expedition team set sail to the Arctic in September 2011 until the final weekend of the Cultural Olympiad in September 2012, Nowhereisland had a different Resident Thinker each week. Our 52 Resident Thinkers were drawn from environmentalism to peace activism, broadcasting to stand-up comedy, sustainable farming to human rights. Online responses to each article were archived throughout the year.

Nowhereisland Resident Thinkers used the opportunity to test out new ideas about how we might shape our society or to consider how such ideas might be explored through an artwork. These propositions are independent views, imagining Nowhereisland as a place where we might begin again.

The Resident Thinkers programme was published by Situations in 2012. The views expressed in the Resident Thinkers programme are those of the author and not necessarily those of the Publisher. May Contain Strong Language.
