First gathering 15 April!

First gathering 15 April!

Get the feeling something’s gone wrong with our societies? Let’s figure out how to do it better.

Good Societies is a new project that asks: what would a ‘good’ society look like? In regular workshops and a reading group, we tackle questions like: What kind of economic models would a good society have? What kinds of political systems? What would gender look like in a good society? Would we have nation-states?

Join us for our launch event on April 15, for an introductory workshop followed by fun and gezelligheid.  Send us an email if you’d like to come along. Hope to see you there!

What is Good Societies?

What is Good Societies?

The Good Societies project offers a space to come together to reflect on what a ‘good’ society might look like. We think that, in an age of economic, political and ecological turmoil, it’s more important than ever to open our imaginations and formulate real alternatives to our current social arrangements.

Based in Amsterdam, the project consists of regular workshops and a reading group combining non-fiction and fiction. We tackle questions like: what economic models would a good society have? What political systems? What would gender look like in a good society? Would we have nation-states?

The events are open, and the aim is to create a welcoming atmosphere in which we can really get somewhere in developing our ideas together.

We’re also looking to work with all kinds of groups and individuals to create exhibitions, screenings, publications, media content, and any other activity that takes our fancy.

Our first meeting will be in April – we’ll keep you posted about the exact time and place. Please contact us if you’d like to get involved.
