Our Policies

We offer several ways to engage with the David Graeber Institute (DGI)


  • Work with us on developing the David Graeber Archive which includes David’s extensive notebooks and correspondence. Follow our open calls and get involved, and subscribe to our journal (by post) and mailing list (on-line). We will be looking for funding for individual researchers, as well as working in collaboration with academic and other institutions with their own funding.
    Find our open call here.
  • Participate in the Brains Trust project to envision and catalyze a future we want: take part in our APT ART exhibitions, in our collective dinners, in our workshops, and in art events related to the Climate Emergency.
  • If you have a residency where you are willing to host researchers and participants in Institute projects, write to us, and we will discuss terms of collaboration with our Distributed Residency Program.
  • David Graeber Institute does not fund or support individual projects that are not part of the Institute’s program.

Our Partners:

  • ETH AI Center at the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Adrian Notz (work on the archive)
  • Harun Faroki Institute (residency program)
  • Ocean Rebellion (Brain Trust)

If you would like to partner with the Institute

    • Please, send us an email about your plans, and we will try to reply as soon as possible.
    • We can then send your proposal for approval to the DGI international board of advisers (the page with names is coming soon).
    • In the event that we can proceed, we will sign an agreement with you and put your name and logo on our website.

Museum of Care:

David Graeber Institute also supports the virtual infrastructure of the informal project Museum of Care.  All projects of the Museum of Care (MoC) are open to anyone and do not require any confirmation, provided you respect the broad drift of David Graeber’s principles—such as the need to replace production and consumption with freedom and care. People can create and manage their own projects (MoC calls them “rooms”). Many, but not all, of the Museum’s projects are connected to projects of the Institute and would help develop David’s ideas outside the academic and institutional framework, counting on a broad circle of civil society around the world.
