School of Apocalypse Radio


Every Second Sunday at Pioneer Works, School of Apocalypse hosts a five hour long, marathon discussion in the airstream trailer about apocalypse, survival, and the cultural role of creative practice. School of Apocalypse examines the connections between creative practice and notions of survival. The SoA has no fixed definition of apocalypse or survival, but engages with the fundamental questions the themes provoke. We understand the creative potential of a school to be a space in which shared experience generates deeper insights and can lead to alternative cultural systems. The school invites a range of thinkers, artists and scientists to present programming. Subjects of study are theoretical as well as hands on, and emphasize the integration of observational and material practices found in mystical traditions, creative modalities and scientific field work.
