Basic Income Create-a-thons

Learn More


Between 2015 and 2017, Universal Income Project led efforts to organize Basic Income Create-a-thons across the United States. In a weekend marathon of intrinsically-motivated work, writers, artists, videographers, developers, musicians, and other creatives formed teams to create content and media around the theme of a universal basic income.

The ideas for these projects came from the participants: compelling videos, engaging web applications, cool art projects, and so many other creative concepts to inspire the imagination on how life might be different if all people had fundamental economic security.
