"What's Possible?" is a question of vital concern to progressive educators, artists and activists as well as ordinary people throughout the world in these chaotic times. What we believe to be possible determines "what" we try to change and "how" we try to do it. How do human beings come to our collective conclusions about what's possible and what's not? How are the borders of the possible established by various cultures? Are there ways to break out of established ways of understanding/interfacing with reality? Can we create new ways of seeing and bringing into being new possibilities?

Join Lois Holzman for a playful and philosophical exploration around and about the history of this revolutionary approach to human development.
