Solarpunk: What Would a Brighter Future Look Like?

Short url: 

https://squ.at/r/ablq

When you imagine the world you want to live in, what do you see?

There is no shortage of events these days that remind us of the problems that exist in the modern world. From wars, famines, genocides to rent hikes, intolerance and local corruption. And as it always seems to be, we can talk endlessly about these problems, their causes, and how awful it is they exist at all

It's important we talk about them, but we also need to hope for something more than just "solutions". A better world is possible, and the art movement of Solarpunk is something that can help us give form to the jumble of left-wing, ecological, anti-authoritarian and progressive ideas in our heads.

Solarpunk attempts to combine a utopian vision of our future, where we live ecologically, communally, equally, with a practical and achievable outlook. Come by our session to learn more about how Solarpunk can help you see that future worth fighting for!

-----------------

The formal education system affects us all. Not only are we forced to attend schools growing up, but academic research shapes our governments, our news, and how we view the world around us. As much as many of us want to believe in the promise of institutional education, the sad fact is that our schools and universities are undemocratic and elitist. They perpetuate inequalities instead of giving people the tools to fight them. This world is fucked.

Here at Radical Sunday School, though, we know that another world is possible. Everyone should be able to direct their own learning, to grow together with their communities, and to live as though they’re already free. There are countless examples of movements already putting these ideas into practice. This collective is trying to follow in their footsteps, organizing to explore new ways of learning based on principles of autonomy, mutual aid, and egalitarianism.

This is not intended to be a course that you would have to follow all the way through. Jump in and out whenever you like. Sessions will be held every Sunday at Joe's Garage.

Doors open at 17.30, we start sharp at 18.00!
