Folding Social is an exhibition that speaks to the idea of a “folding society”.

To begin unpacking methods to leverage social innovation and prepare for future challenges, is to broaden our perspective on what is implementable and possible.

To define “social innovation” requires looking at the growing system of complexities that our postmodern society operates within.
