We are curating a worldwide community of sustainability experts, technologists and storytellers to explore the power of emerging technologies - such as AR, VR, MR and AI -- to foster positive impact, and accelerate the transition to greener, more resilient cities.

JOIN THE MOVEMENT and help us design the STORIES X FUTURE!


StoriesXFuture is a project by

Garage Stories & Overview Collective.

In September 2019, Overview Collective joined forces with Garage Stories to invite activists, artists, designers, developers and policy makers in New York to generate visionary ideas and build prototypes for how XR technologies can foster climate action and accelerate us towards a greener, more sustainable world.

StoriesXFuture has evolved into a virtual series and worldwide community, exploring how emerging media, art, technology and science intersect. We connect experts to decode scientific knowledge and explore how art and emerging media can foster positive impact. 

Through participatory virtual experiences, we empower everyone to understand climate issues, and take part in architecting a better future. Our series explores the power of technology to discover unexpected ideas that are unique to each XR medium, while bringing together the brightest minds to actively architect a new future.


June 2020

During World Oceans month, we’re teaming up with Peace Boat US and Friends of UN World Oceans Day to celebrate our love for the ocean & those who protect it. Throughout June, we'll explore cutting-edge technologies, and learn how to participate in ocean research and activism - even while at home.

Scientists and sustainability experts from Project Drawdown, the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences, NASA Oceans EXPORTS, ad SpeSeas will contextualize and decode the greatest marine challenges from the front lines while defining the innovations and technologies that are already transforming our world.

Independent artists, performers, activists and technologists from the Peace Boat US, Litterati, and Mama Eco will inspire you with stories about their personal sustainability journeys, inviting you to join them in creating a more sustainable ocean.

AR Artist, Creative Director & Educator Kristin Lucas created this fantastic Augmented Reality filter to help you show your support for the ocean!
