How Can We Emerge from Polarization? A Language Workshop for Future Humans

15 Jun 2024 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm MDT
Longmont Public Media 457 4th Ave, Longmont, CO, 80501

We use language daily, and language uses us. We use it to free ourselves; it constrains us. We use it to change the world; it keeps the status quo. How can we tell new stories if we have to use the same old assumptions–the ones we don’t know we have?

This FREE workshop will help us push the boundaries of language, not just to use it creatively but to consider creating new foundations for language.

WHY?: We can’t keep trying to solve the problems we created using the same mindset we created them with. The mindset we use, are using, is built into the language we use. It’s like trying to fix a leaky pipe by using a tool that creates more leaks!

WHO IS IT FOR? Anyone interested in language—whether as a writer, a linguist, a conlanger, or a quantum physicist.
