PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The Utopia School is a temporary free school and social space for sharing information about both failed and successful utopian projects while working towards new ones. We define Utopia as those projects and initiatives which re-imagine the world in some crucial way. The Utopia School takes the form of a people-powered “social center” – a space where people can gather for free and engage in thoughtful discussion and practical skill-shares. In Fall 2021, the Utopia School will partner with the sustainable farm, educational space and artists residency Habitable Spaces in Kingsbury Texas. Habitable Spaces is interested in the nexus between arts and agriculture and in building local resilience through community. OPEN CALL for: - Classes: online and in-person - Artists/Scientists/Builders/Chefs/Documentarians - Virtual engagement: Engage with the school virtually via instructionals, digital installations, interventions, writings, film screenings, and other possibilities
