The Slow Grind: Practicing Hope and Imagination follows the thread of dreaming, worldmapping and future-thinking that The Slow Grind: Finding Our Way Back to Creative Balance ,the inaugural book published in 2020, spearheaded.

This time, we engage in the project of relearning the importance of hope and imagination. Presenting visions that assert these as principles that require the re-enchanting of our minds and the lighting of a kinetic force within our molecular bodies. This book focuses on radical ecology, the power of art as a memory keeper, and the poetics of creativity as a necessary antidote to the fear and anxiety we are all feeling in the face of multiple crises.

Key to this is a belief that holding hope for our ecology starts with holding hope for ourselves and one another. Filled with the insight of more than 20 thinkers, activists and futurists spanning the globe, the perspectives held within the architecture of this book are concerned with encouraging the development of a planetary consciousness that is informed by hopeful criticality and urgency.
