Dark ‘n’ Light explores science, nature, social justice and culture, through the arts and humanities. We are a home for projects that chronicle the times we live in and reimagine futures for all species and the planet. By playfully traversing traditional boundaries with a range of collaborators and co-creators, and challenging linear, binary worldviews, we feature projects which include poetry, stories, essays, films, audio, and mixed media art. At its heart, this space aims to bring together voices from across fields and in the margins to nourish our innate senses of curiosity and wonder.
For us, we cherish the process, the making of the projects, the conversations, the iterations, the stories behind the scenes and we want to take our time, join dots between our projects, meet new people, follow new leads, go down rabbit holes and learn as we go along.
The projects in Dark ‘n’ Light are sponsored and conceptualized by KRIT Consulting Sàrl which is based in Geneva, Switzerland.

She is the principal blogger and podcaster at Dark ‘n’ Light, so you will get to know more about her as the site evolves.
