FULL SCHEDULE

Utopia School is an ongoing project that shares information about both failed and successful utopian projects and work towards new ones. For us, utopias are those spaces and initiatives that re-imagine the world in some crucial way. The school engages and connects people through urgent conversations, with the goal of exploring, archiving and distributing collective knowledge throughout this multi-city project. Over time, we will create a comprehensive open curricula on utopian thought and practice. Some examples of what we will be studying include physical places, relationship dynamics, systems of organizing, political contexts, common roadblocks, and the methods used to create and sustain these projects.

Utopia School is hosting a 5 day pop-up school from January 25th – 29th focused on the practical aspects of opening a new community space in New York City and/or the northeast USA. This will be an opportunity to gather with like minded people interested in opening a long term space and begin to workshop, and even carry out the preparatory steps to doing just that.
The January 2018 Session of the Utopia School is generous hosted by Flux Factory.
