Info about Vagabondism Class

Vagabondism Class
Transience as a viable and sustainable creative action, historical models and resources
Beginning May 26th, six meetings every Tuesday

At The Public School, Los Angeles and Basekamp, Philadelphia

or join us from anywhere on Skype. Connect to username BASEKAMP

Two groups will meet in person, one in Los Angeles and one in Philadelphia and we will connect via Skype with others joining remotely . There are two main goals set out for Vagabodism. One is to form a notable historical framework highlighting examples of vagabonding and/or transience during the last one hundred years. A few examples we will study include looking at modern peripatetic peoples, transient teens during the Great Depression, or the open-land experiment known as Morningstar during the 1960’s. The second goal is to highlight online resources and fellows peers’ personal travel accounts to aid in the organization of a travel experiement with fellow participants.

Join us every Tuesday night – in person, or on Skype, skypename: ‘basekamp’
If you come to the potluck in person, be sure to bring a dish :)
