  • The Public School Class - SUNDAY 5/8

    Join us on Sunday afternoon to learn more about The Public School while eating some delicious soup. If you've had questions about the way The Public School works (what classes get chosen? why? what is the decision-making process?) then come down and ask. If you have ideas about how the school could work better, this class is intended to be one opportunity to put them forward. And if you just want to get more involved in the administrative life of The Public School, you can come and find out how.

  • Ceci n'est pas une CAA - recap

    Thank you to everyone who came out and participated in our weekend program during the CAA conference. Unlike the big event down at the convention center, we welcomed everybody to join a long, open, informal conversation. The schedule is posted here. imageimage
  • Ceci n'est pas une CAA

    The Public School is hosting its own conference with many of the same amazing people who are visiting Los Angeles for CAA. Ours will be free; it will be modeled as a long, open, informal conversation, occasionally interrupted by screenings and short presentations; and it will encourage as much overlap, cross-pollination, and running over time as possible. Drop in and drop out when you can - the following schedule is a guide to what might be happening.
    FRIDAY 5:00-? 5-6* Michael Gerald Bauer - Vagabondism 5-7 Scott Rigby - Plausible Artworlds

  • Time Banking Workshop

    Learn how to set up your own time bank. Looking for an alternative to the cash economy? Time banking builds self reliance and relationships. Time banking is a "pay it forward" system for weaving community. When you spend an hour doing something for your neighbor you earn a time dollar. Then you can spend a time dollar to have someone in your community do something for you such as, dog walking, tutoring, yard work, haircuts and massage. We are all assets. There are 65 time banks in the US and 300 world wide. Los Angeles only has two. Lets build a network of branches.
