The ideas of progress, growth and expansion, which for a long time defined the visions about the future in Western cultures, and marked the action strategies (social, economic and political) undertaken have been replaced in the last few years by the idea of “collapse”. Recent events (pandemic, invasion of Ukraine, etc.) and systemic facts (global warming, resource depletion, etc.) lead us to believe that the world, as we have known it up to now, is heading towards a total collapse. Different authors have defended in recent years the need to articulate a debate on collapse that helps us to think about how such collapse could be triggered and what its implications would be (Servigne and Stevens, 2015). Within the framework of DAHSS22, we propose to think about creativity as a mechanism to ameliorate the causes that lead us to a collapse and to imagine possible alternative futures. Thus, the DAHSS22 five tracks will revolve around the following central question: How can creativity and imagination, in alliance with contemporary digital, technological and computational developments, become an asset to replace the idea of collapse with that of rebirth for thinking and making a new future?
