Ethics, Æsthetics, Ecology, Education


The Oregon Institute for Creative Research: E4, a 501(c)(3), is a platform for developing new models for research and critique, art and intervention, representation and verification; a school and educational initiative in which students and researchers work on major questions of pressing concern in terms of junctures and intersections (Ethics, Æsthetics, Ecology, Education); and a project incubator for actuating optimal futures in the face of massive change, political polarization, and environmental catastrophe. Towards this end, the OICR fosters the work of thinkers and makers devoted to tackling contemporary challenges in new and innovative ways—scholars, theorists, journalists, documentarians, social-justice advocates, artists, writers, and poets.
