It’s Don’t Go Back to School Season. I’m throwing a party and you are all invited.
Don’t Go Back to School party & teach-in
Thursday September 12, 7-9pm
180 Varick St. Suite 1610
This is going to be an amazing night of celebrating, teaching, and learning. One of the biggest lessons I discovered in researching and writing Don’t Go Back to School is that learning together is the way people learn and create. I’m on a mission to make that better known and more possible, and this party is all about doing that.
I’m gathering some of the smartest people I know to talk about getting started learning things like creative writing, coding, cooking, loving art, and graphic design. Plus there will be beer and snacks. Come learn with us and stand up for independent learning!
Clay Shirky on being an autodidact (there’s a catch)
Nick Gray (Museum Hack/Hack the Met) on art appreciation
Keira Alexandra on graphic design
Jacqui Maher (New York Times) on learning to code
Kristen Taylor (Saucy Magazine, Al Jazeera Fault Lines) on cooking
Peter Richardson on learning new things really fast
Madhu Kaza on creative writing
To make the night even more special, I’ve recruited the team from Make It Happen to be on site doing ritual consultations that lead to commitments to learn and make things happen in your life. It’s a really special experience and I’m so excited to give it to you.
I really hope you can come, and I’d love to meet you, so please make sure you introduce yourself!
