Thursdays 10, 17 March, 7th April 2022 // 6-8pm //
Weekly gatherings on livelihood, how we relate to each other and other beings on this planet, and forms of self-organisation. The discussion will focus on working out ways that the ideas can be practiced in our daily lives. Initiated by Xin Cheng and Adam Ben-Dror, we also welcome suggestions and co-hosting by you.
Week 1, Thursday 10th March 6-8pm – Rethinking materials and skills for volatile futures’ by Chantel Carr and Professor Chris Gibson (Australian Centre for Cultural Environmental Research), The Journal of Resourcefulness, Volume 1, 2018.

Week 3, Thursday 7th April 6-8pm – Reading: To Be Announced
We will take bites off these texts as starting points for the discussions:
– “The Dawn of Everything”, David Graeber and David Wengrow, 2021
– “Mushroom at the End of the World”, Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing, 2015
The gatherings are open to anyone who wishes to participate and we encourage you to forward this invitation to your networks. We will be reading, tasting and experiencing an unexpected mixture each week, and experimenting with how we can use them in our daily lives.
