Basic Bike Maintenance at Cycles for Change(April)

This class is designed as a complete introduction to the basics of maintaining your bicycle yourself. Learning to fix your own bike can save you money, ensure access to reliable transportation, and be a rewarding personal experience to understand how your vehicle functions. Participants aren’t expected to know anything beforehand – the only thing you need to bring is your lovely selves, your bike if you want, and a creative desire to learn! In addition to providing technical explanations and building mechanical knowledge and confidence, this class will attempt to provide a basic overview of the role of community bike shops throughout the country and world, as we work to build sustainable transportation movements locally and globally.

What is a Metaphore?

"Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes all the difference." ~ Stephen King

1. Writing is a lonely and difficult endeavor.

2. The most important thing for a writer to do is write.

3. Writer's need encouragement.

Exploring Alternative Education

Everyone is welcome to join at any point

In this class, we will open our minds about different ways to approach and organize education for youth . We'll first take a critical look at the “banking system” approach that schools dominantly use (e.g., a focus on memorization, testing, the student as a passive receptor of information, and knowledge as a commodity). And then, we'll explore other educational projects that differ from this vision.

 

To do so, we will bring in guest speakers each week from local schools and projects that draw on a diverse array of approaches, such as democratic, nature-focused, Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and more. Each of them has a different way of thinking about the “student”, and we'll ask questions about what each approach means for the child, what the political implications are, and other questions that are relevant and important to participants of the class. We will also talk about the traditions and movements these projects come from and about their successes and challenges in their day-to-day practice.

 

During the sessions we will have presentations from our guest speakers, discussions and group activities. We will also share resources with each other (i.e., readings, curricula, news articles) for those who want to explore them in-between each session.

Non-Traditional Parents Group

This class is intended to provide support to people with children who are raising their children or living their own lives in a non-traditional way.  We seek to share our experiences, thoughts and compassion with others who share the common bond of raising a young person in a time of revolution.  The subject of our meetings will ultimately be based on what the group would like to discuss but some subjects may include.

How we support our children in their individuality

How we deal with troubling behavior

How we deal with images and ideas from the media

Recipe shares/ diet

How we keep politically involved as parents

How we involve our children in the world

How we expose or shelter our children from politics 

How we embrace non-conformity in our households 

How we deal with critisism from the outside world

 

Children are welcome!

Reading Group on Radical Feminism

Styled rather like a bookclub, this reading group will open the way for conversations about radical feminsim. We'll start by reading and discussing the book Feminism is for Everyone by bell hooks and from there, we'll read whatever the group feels comes next. I'm really hoping that in reading and talking, we learn about ourselves, about our world, the ways in which we hurt each other, and how to love each other. Radical feminsim is about radical love. How do we practice that?

Absolutely no knowledge or experience of feminism necessary.

The first meeting will be Monday 3/10 at 7pm, but we'll talk scheduling there and maybe move the class time if another day works better for more people.

Starting point: Feminism is for Everyone by bell hooks  ......Then there's so much more we could read -  I have an list of ideas, but suggestions are more than welcome.

We'll start reading and talking and evaluate as we go. I have a pdf copy of Feminism is for Everyone that I can send out. I could probably also print a few copies so if anyone wants one, let me know.

Music Anarchy

Music Anarchy was inspired by a long-simmering brain storm: I do not accept the division of persons into performers and audience and the further division of performers into bands. To me it feels like we are all one swarm forever being carved up in order to sell or be sold to. I am driven by the desire to perform. The usual logic is to be prudent in how often one performs so as to be able to draw an audience for each performance. However, if I had my way, I would ideally perform 5 days a week every week. I play a type of music that is not widely appreciated or enjoyed.

Given the above, presenting music in a standard-concert-setting-location-etc did not seem ideal. A search for non-standard performance space resulted in our present location, the piano room of the Hennepin County Central Library and Music Anarchy has been meeting there twice a week since October 2013. Meetings last for one hour.

Music Anarchy takes a cue from the Spontaneous Music Ensemble who were active in London during the 1960s and their month of 6-nights a week performances at the Little Theatre Club. During Music Anarchy, the assembled players set up quickly and all begin performing right away. Participants play together simultaneously and each session create a piece of music of roughly 45 or so minutes. The last ten minutes of the session is time for talking, introductions, etc. Participants are encouraged to bring an instrument, voice, or object with which to perform. Participants who bring electronic instruments are asked to use an amplifier of 1watt or less (or be prepared to play at an equivalent volume). All styles and genres of music performance are welcomed. All Music Anarchy sessions are recorded and can be listened to here: http://4gre.org/musicanarchy/
