UNTITLED Imaginary Society
Curated by Life Itself
Subscribe to the Untitled newsletter and follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with the Imaginary Society’s program.
Untitled Imaginary Society is an online forum open to anyone to exercise our social imagination in practice and in theory. In 2021 it is curated by Untitled Alliance member Life Itself.
Any social or political envisioning is constrained by an invisible frame: by the implicit values and views on which it is created, now importantly its view of the nature of human beings. Any big vision therefore begins with a vision for the “Being” of human beings. And so we need to go back to basics if we are to rediscover our Imagination and create possibility for ourselves and our societies.
For example, much of modern economic and political thought rests on the assumption that you or I know what we want (think markets, democracy etc). However, most wisdom traditions teach us that discovering what we want is actually very hard and takes deep practice and reflection.
Imaginary Society’s meetings have three parts: inspiration, conversation and documentation. Conversation part happens in small groups, and is a wonderful opportunity to meet fellow enthusiasts on social imagination. You can also join only the first part. Warmly welcome!
