Parenting Praxis

“Liberation is praxis: the action and reflection of men and women upon their world in order to transform it."--Paolo Friere

What if parenting was a form of social liberation?  What if parenting is the painting of a future community canvas?  What if parenting was a practice of learning to love? 

Parenting is a practice, a process, and often times crazy-challenging.  Join this group of parents who are interested in learning how to love as the solution.

A Colorful History: Summer Place Community Conversation at Olana

“A path is a prior interpretation of the best way to traverse a landscape.”― Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking

Today what is the role of the artist to place and place to artist? How do the colors of a place affect the creations in a place?  Why is art important to our place now? These and other big questions surrounding color, history and art will be discussed at Instar Lodge’s upcoming FREE public Summer Place Community Conversation, co-hosted with Good Work Institute at Olana, June 24th at 3:00pm. Always FREE, always for EVERYONE.
