Jay Springett is a consultant strategist and writer. He works with individuals and organisations to create cohesive worlds. Hybrid environments made up of people, places, technologies and the cultures they create together.
He is recognised as an articulate voice in the emerging speculative genre of Solarpunk. A movement that seeks to answer and embody the question “what does a sustainable civilisation look like, and how can we get there?”.
He has described Solarpunk as a memetic engine – a tool to power the ‘refuturing’ of our collective imagination. His Solarpunk short story ‘In The Storm, A Fire’ was long listed for the BSFA Award for Short Fiction and Chanticleer International Book Awards Short Story Award Semifinalist.
In 2019 he was selected as one of WeAreEurope’s 64 Faces of Europe and is a Fellow of Royal Society of Arts. He co-founded the decentralised creative exchange guild.is and is a member of the Global Regeneration CoLab.
He has spoken about the future, technology and regenerative culture at events such as Unsound Festival (PL), Sonar+D (ES), Fiber Festival (NL), Theorising the Web (US), and Transmediale (DE).
He describes himself as an artist without art and has been writing online under the handle @thejaymo since 2001.
