IN CHARLOTTESVILLE & AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA
APRIL 10-12, 2013
With Nora Bateson & Stephen Nachmanovitch
Organized by Stephen Nachmanovitch
& Ira Bashkow
Two-part main event:
April 11 • 7-9 PM at the Vinegar Hill Theater: Nora Bateson’s award-winning film, An Ecology of Mind, with audience discussion. Sold out.
April 12 • 1-3 PM • Symposium on the continuing impact of Gregory Bateson’s ideas, with a multidisciplinary panel, and audience discussion, at the University of Virginia, Brooks Hall, followed by a reception from 3-4. Moderated by Ira Bashkow. Free & open to the public.
We hope that people will be able to come to both events if possible, and that the symposium on Friday will grow out of the experience of seeing the film on Thursday.
Additional special events:
April 10 • 12:30 - 1:30 PM - Special preview presentation at the UVa Medical Center Hour, Jordan Hall. Moderated by Daniel Becker. Free and open to the public.
April 11 • 9-11 AM - Screening for local high school students and members of the wider community, hosted by Tandem Friends School. 279 Tandem Lane, Charlottesville, VA 22903. Sold out.
The major problems in the world today are the result of the difference between how nature works and the way people think.
– Gregory Bateson
The goal of these events is to reawaken interest in Bateson’s work and generate new conversations about his most productive ideas.
