Futurefarmers is a group of artists and designers working together since 1995. The Futurefarmers design studio serves as a platform to support art projects, an artist residency program, and research interests. We are teachers, researchers, designers, gardeners, scientists, engineers, illustrators, people who know how to sew, cooks and bus drivers with a common interest in creating work that challenges current social, political and economic systems.

Amy Franceschini, Michael Swaine, and Dan Allende comprise the core team working on Sunshine Still. Futurefarmers presented the Free Soil Bus Tour and the 2006 and 2008 01SJ Biennials, and they were a nominee for the 01SJ Green Prix Award in 2008.
