Utopia School is an ongoing educational project that shares information about failed and successful utopian projects and works towards new ones. For us, utopias are those spaces and initiatives that re-imagine the world in some crucial way. The Utopia School will be popping up at Flux Factory for a 5 day session of classes from January 25th – 29th. Here's a daily Schedule of Events.
