What have we learned about the power of art to not only change individual lives, but serve as an organizing principle of organizations?
Descent Into Madness, an event produced by the San Francisco Institute of Possibility, will provide the answer to that question in two forms:
- A book
- A parade
This may be the first time in history that a parade will be used as a pedagogical technique to answer questions about the principles of social organizing … or honestly just about anything else.
But we’re doing it, with concepts taken from decades of collective experience in art and community organizing, along with costumes from the SFIOP’s epic “Fallen Cosmos” event.
You’ll learn everything you need to know, in parade form.
The event is free for anyone who contributed to the “Book of the UN” Kickstarter. Otherwise it’s $20 at the door, and you get a free advance copy of The Book of the UN, written by SFIOP executive director Chicken John Rinaldi, and edited by SFIOP Board Chairman Benjamin Wachs.
Here’s the details:
- WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016, beginning at 8 p.m. and running late
- WHERE: 111 Minna Gallery, in San Franciso
- WHAT: Expect a street fair, gallery tours, bizzare happening, the pre-release of a book that will change your life, and – oh yeah – A PARADE! DID WE TELL YOU ABOUT THE PARADE?
