The 1st annual School of Thought will take place April 19 - April 24. There will be 8 events, which will bring poets, experts and social activists together to share ideas and exchange perspectives.
The presentation will be unique, experimental and cutting edge. It will be a circle of possibility—and the process will be interactive.
The poets, experts and activists will be invited to speak as a means to stimulate ideas—a la TedTalk (only longer). The community/ audience will then be invited to participate in a discussion—which will be punctuated by a series of bells/ chimes/ and gongs. The community will be participants, and will be given the opportunity of sharing their ideas.
The circles will be facilitated by a speaking guide.
