About Utopia School
Utopia School is an ongoing, nomadic learning project that shares information about both failed and successful utopian projects and works to establish new ones. Utopia School defines utopias as spaces and initiatives that re-imagine the world in some crucial way. The school engages and connects people through conversations and workshops with the goal of exploring, archiving and distributing collective knowledge. Utopia School's topics of study include physical places, relationship dynamics, systems of organizing, political contexts, common roadblocks, and the methods used to create and sustain these projects. Anyone can get involved in any class, anyone can ask questions, discuss ideas, or help plan the class.
