let’s build your world.

Clever Society aims to directly address missing perspectives in visual media, technology and design through education and engagement. We work with creative leaders using storytelling and technology to build ideas for the future.


you can usually find us telling stories

we’re driven by speculative design

Speculative design uses storytelling to explore ideas outside of conventional thinking. We view this type of design as a powerful tool for exploring social innovation and re-framing socio-economic issues through narrative and story. Under this framework, we develop systems built for the world of tomorrow.


interactive events

Our events are immersive stories which question the way we live, work and play. We work with partners every year to host exhibitions focused on independent filmmaking and social innovation through critical and collaborative design. Our events are an opportunity to take a look at where the future may be going and ensure that Black, intersectional experiences are represented there.

collaborative classes

We know that the world moves fast and we’re invested in keeping up with it. To help you stay up to date, Clever Society hosts classes and workshops focused on building skills in new media, design and technology.
