Bluestockings Education Project presents the Icarus Project Radical Mental Health Series Mad Maps: Paths to Personal Transformation and Collective Liberation
Mad Maps are documents that we create for ourselves as reminders of our goals, what is important to us, our personal signs of struggle and our strategies for self-determined well-being. Though originally inspired by the idea of Advanced Directives (legal documents to share with doctors and friends in the event of being hospitalized), over time this idea has evolved further to include a transformative element: how do we move beyond adapting and coping, toward actually changing the world that we live in? By creating documents that help us to explore our mad gifts and better understand and get through tough times, we are able to re-envision the boundaries of our individual and collective potential.

The Emergent Agriculture: Farming, Sustainability and the Return of the Local Economy
With Gary Kleppel
A revolution is underway. It is changing the way Americans produce and consume food. A new paradigm is replacing the dominant industrial model of agriculture, which ignores the basic rules of Nature and is unsustainable by any definition of sustainability. Farmer and ecologist, Gary Kleppel will describe this new food system in a video presentation and discussion of his book, The Emergent Agriculture – Farming, Sustainability and the Return of the Local Economy.

Friday | January 9 | 7pm
The Next Revolution: Murray Bookchin and the Politics of Direct Democracy
With Blair Taylor and Debbie Bookchin
Murray Bookchin was a pioneering thinker and lifelong revolutionary whose politics of ecological direct democracy strongly influenced the New Left, ecology movement, alterglobalization movement, and most recently the Kurdish liberation struggle. The Next Revolution brings together Bookchin’s essays on freedom and popular assemblies for the first time; coeditors Debbie Bookchin and Blair Taylor will discuss how this political vision can help us move from protest to social transformation.
