Utopia School is a month-long social center hosted by Flux Factory for the purpose of studying Utopian experiments throughout time, as well as practicing skills towards building new free spaces and practices. These classes, screenings, discussions and games will be connected by the essential question: What kinds of information are useful for re-imaging the future?
There will be several Utopians-in-Residence as well as class leaders involved in running the space at any given time, co-learning together, and teaching classes. Opportunities are still available for additional course proposals or volunteer participants.
I’m helping to plan some events within Utopia School … and even residing there for ten-day period … even if I don’t count myself a utopian. Here is the programme for the month — Part 1 & Part 2. Utopia School is open October 1-31: Wednesday-Sunday from 12pm-10pm at Flux Factory, 39-31 29th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101, except when otherwise noted.
