Beta tests and betta fishes, who, as it turns out, enjoy others when they're in a conducive environment. In the be(t)ta room, we dream, thrive, and material-ize. We create transformations at many scales: personal, collective, and societal.
We are building a new era of humanity. Just in being, we are participating in the shifting — the age of Aquarius expands. In be(t)ta room, we act collectively to make dreams material, and we do so in anti-capitalist, radical aliveness ways. Our shared intention is to (1) build momentum focusing on process, by experimenting with reconceptualizing "SMART goals," instead embodying "places process," and we (2) hold beta testing as a north star and desired outcome, a place where we launch material-ized drafts of our dreams into this world.
New cohorts begin with new zodiac seasons. We meet twice a month, riding new moons and full moons, as wizards, witches, and bridges of ether and earth. We will read selected texts, discuss, share, listen, and build structures/non-structures of support, and then birth drafts into our beta testing space for feedback and practice. We nonlinearly build and hold space for us to thrive and birth limbs. We ecosphere each other. And we beta test.
Participants work in the realms of participatory art, performance art, art curation, social practice art, arts-based events, community organizing, and/or workshop facilitation.
We are experimenting with having a new relationship to dream-ing and material-izing. We align by releasing insistence on implementing agendas we've created for ourselves, instead learning to do a co-creation dance with the Universe.
