Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

PEOPLE OF EVOKE: I Need Your Help ^^

Ok, so I sort of have this idea.

And I need YOUR HELP and ideas.

I am thinking of starting a, well I'm not sure what form yet, but somewhere where adults can go. The project will aim to increase creativity, 'thinking like a child' and widen one's perspective of the world.

Ultimately? It could take any form:

-Internet

-Workshops

-Books

-TV programs

etc.

So I need your ideas and your views. What do you think about it? The way I see it, the leaders of tomorrow have to learn to think for themselves, rather than let society decide what or how they should act or behave.

I'll blog again regarding this new project. I need a name for it. Something snazzy.

Looking forward to reading you input.

-Amber

I strongly believe that you have shown a lot of courage on your article. You sound like a person who lack knowledge. But I want to tell you right now that You can create your own project with your ideas. Tell yourself that I can do it. Start thinking and do something. You will see the different. I always encourage people to think at their own for their betterment of their future. God has something for you to come out with. You need to start acting today, tomorrow you will see some improvements. Self development is not easy but if you pay attention, you can. Do something and ask people to help you. Your future is in your mind and hands. Take it and act!

I like your idea of increasing creativity and thinking like a child.
Play is vital to learning and creativity for children and adults. I remember many years ago in London an artist made an 'installation' in a big art space and it was really a big blown up jumpy thing. That artist got all of the critics and gallery owners and a wh*** lots of others besides bouncing around like crazy on that great big bouncy thing. Another artist has recently turned a building into a musical instrument that you can play. Under the guise or Art some people get adults to have fun like little kids. A few years ago at the Tate modern there was a vast slide which got all everyone whoozing down on their behinds!
Playing frees you up to think and ... oh yes its fun too!

Sounds a lot like what we do in theatre. In acting cla**** a bunch of adults do things like stand in a circle and make funny noises, move around in unusual ways, imagine themselves to be someone else, find their center (of balance and emotion), feel their breath moving in and out... Lots of things that the normal grown up wouldn't do. It's really important to keep exploring and learning and being creative. Play a game, run around, be silly, imagine. Great idea. +1 Vision

I can't remember the exact daoist quote, but the jist is, you can't fill a full cup. If you empty your cup, it can be filled.

I think the name Empty Cup could work very well.

I think a flash game would be an awesome mass way of promoting child like thought patterns, better if it's somehow multi-player.

Maybe something kind of like this?

A multiplayer creative space with goal oriented solutions could make people cooperate to achieve a goal through artistic means. It might be better if it was more advanced with the draw functions, but could still be good fun.

Children have creativity, and somewhere along the course of life we loose it, what if you did something with schools to encourage creativity, it could change the entire education system. I like the idea of getting adults to think like children, it makes them dream of the impossible, and make it possible.

Hey Amber, I love this idea! I've had a similar sort of idea for a while, only its a library. I wanted it to be half library,half community center, half funhouse, with smoke machines in the mystery section and working stoves in the cooking section, and craft rooms where kids and adults alike can make catepillars out of egg cartons and periscopes out loo roll etc. I call it a Children's library for all ages.

Anyways, been thinking of names for your project. Played with the idea of The Fountain of Youth (might go along well with Shane's cup idea "fill your cup from the fountain of youth") Its kind of goofy but I was thinking Fountain of Youth Incorporated a.k.a. FYI ;)

Also played with the word wonderment, as that's the youthful quality we're after, in the same way a kid would wonder what would happen if you crossed a dinosaur with a dog, we want adults who would think what would you get if you crossed a recycling plant with a building materials company. The Wonderment Coalition has a nice ring to it, but anything along those lines would be good I think.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
