The Post Social Media Club is a collaborative research project that explores and speculates on alternative digital futures.

This project invites 25 European creatives of mixed disciplines from Sweden, Greece, Serbia, France and Turkey to participate in a series of expert-led design masterclasses, engage in a weeklong production-based residency/hackathon in Sweden and finally host five simultaneous exhibitions across Europe showcasing alternative futures. The project is led by STPLN (SE) partnered with four creative hubs Volumes (FR), Nova Iskra (SR), ATÖLYE (TR) and bios (GR).

The program is divided into three phases:


The Vortex 

A four-part series of hourlong online masterclasses arranged for the creatives to participate in. These expert-led masterclasses will provide the prerequisite knowledge in the field of speculative design, design thinking and prototyping for the next phases of the program.


The Lab 

A weeklong artist residencywill bring together all the creatives at STPLN in Malmö, Sweden. During this week, they will be invited for a production-based residency to create interdisciplinary works. The focus on this week will be on experimenting with new techniques, collaborating between mediums, and working on bringing ideas to life through a design-thinking methodology.


The Showcase 

An exhibition-styled event happening at 5 locations across Europe simultaneously. The results produced during The Lab and documentation from the project will be showcased at the locations of the partner organisations. Showcases will be connected and curated together and live streamed to appear as one united event.
