On September 28, Bruce Mau and Massive Change Network will join the dreamers and disruptors from around the world uniting at EDIT, a 10-day design festival unlike any other. The main exhibit, “Prosperity for All,” has been curated by Mau and juxtaposes Magnum photographer Paolo Pellegrin’s unflinching documentation of global conflicts with design projects that seek to advance the human condition. From smog vacuums in China to community revitalization on Fogo Island, “Prosperity for All” is a celebration of the people and projects that are making a difference in the world today.

Inspired by the United Nations Development Programme’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development, the 10-day EDIT festival celebrates the future through installations, events and talks presented by 125 speakers from around the world. If you’d like to learn more about EDIT and purchase tickets, please visit the event website.
