WE LOOK AT THINGS DIFFERENTLY

Social Sciences for Change

Social Sciences for Change

Arthropology Lab is an independent NPO (not-for-profit organization) founded by professionals of the social sciences, arts and humanities. Our aim is to contribute to development by providing appropriate, effective and original solutions, through the nexus between the rigorous research of the social sciences and the critical practice of the visual arts. We love what we do and we want to work with people who feel the same way.

We do not believe in growth. We think about development as the advancement of human well-being coupled with a responsible use of the resource base.
