Ataraxia is a non-profit research group focused on the body, mind and spirit in a shifting technological landscape. Our unique approach challenges traditional notions of how innovation has come to shape our everyday experience of the world. We aim to create a safe and open forum for discussion, placing an emphasis on collaborative research, deliberative workshops, focus groups and small-scale ethnographic research.

Ataraxia is driven by the hope of a society one day populated by capable, secure and healthy citizens. Our inaugural research project, headed by Matthew Drage and Ben Vickers, will be focused on three themes: natural pattern recognition, trust, and emotional stability.
