The Uroboros Festival is a hybrid festival and community network performing experimental inquiry into the transformative potential of design and art research and practice. In a time of repeating social and environmental crises, it is not easy to remain optimistic. Urgent climatic issues, global health risks, increasing socio-economic differences – a constant flow of bad news and predictions of a catastrophic future reminds us that as humanity we have failed. In these complicated times, it is not easy to believe that as socially involved designers and artists, we are capable of bringing positive change. But with the call for _Designing in troubling times_ the participants are invited to open the floor for speculations about possible future scenarios.
