7:00pm, $Give What You Can
2nd and 4th Wednesdays | 6—7:30 PM | starting March 11, 2020
Following the lead of matsutake, a mushroom that grows in human-disturbed forests, this group will investigate the idea of collaborative survival in the work we do and the lives we lead. During the first six meetings, we will focus on Part 1 of Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing's book The Mushroom at the End of the World and delve into the multi-species landscapes of capitalist destruction. We’ll discuss commerce and ecology as well as curiosity and possibility. Perhaps we will discover surprising ways to co-inhabit our patch of the world. And for those curious about the reading commitment, we will be focusing on one 10-page chapter at a time.
