[Re-Writing, Re-Righting] Cassandra

Sep 16 – Dec 7, 2019 | Urbana, IL & Hillsboro, WV

A Project of Focussing…

School for Designing a Society, Gesundheit Institute, and Dr. Patch Adams are looking for people from all walks of life who will commit–as first priority—to focussing on the Oct. 8 2018 announcement by the United Nations Committee on Global Climate Change:

“We have 12 years left to limit climate change catastrophe.”,

and responding to it. Responses will be seriously playful—no doom and gloom (but maybe goom and dloom)—-as a strategy to elicit involvement of others, and to elicit focus.

Cassandra was a figure in Greek mythology, a woman cursed to utter prophecies that were true but no one believed. In our project we want to ‘re-write’ (and ‘re-right’) that curse, to find our Cassandras, to listen to them, to understand from them what time it is on the clock—the ticking clock– of the world. We have 12 years left.

We are looking for Cassandras for this fall session of School for Designing a Society, September 16— December 7, 2019. Is that you? (and we will continue with this focus in coming years for the time we have left).


How to Apply?

[Re-Writing, Re-Righting] Cassandra is a collaboration—not a school session, though teaching and learning will happen continuously. There is no tuition involved, only, focussing.

Preparing for participation consists of 2 parts:

  1. Tell us a bit about yourself: Please take a moment to fill out the questionnaire.
  2. We will then contact you to arrange a phone/skype conversation.
