What is DecadesOut?
DecadesOut is a forward looking, social impact driven, media producing, arts supporting organization. It exists to create, encourage and support our collective pursuit of beauty and knowledge and foster an appreciation of our unique existence.
Science is the study of the physical world and society, and humanity has always been inextricably tied to the dictates of science. From the discovery of fire that freed us to roam the world to the current understanding of the laws of physics and chemistry that regulate our universe and our bodies: from the development of the technologies behind medicine, communications, exploration, and warfare to the eventual reformation of our world and ourselves, mankind and science have and will exist together as the best of friends and most bitter adversaries.
The work of DecadesOut looks toward the future and into history to not only find where the power of science acts in accord with the spirit of humankind, but also where lessons can be learned to avoid the great potential for harm that science possesses when its power is uncontrollable or misused. It also examines the role that scientists, engineers, explorers and educators have and will play as the human ambassadors to science in the understanding of this fundamental relationship.
As the age of science has become a steady framework for humanity's development (and source of debate), there needs to be outlets dedicated to artists as they engage in the growing dialogue between science and society. DecadesOut exists to meet that need.
