Bob Snead, local artist, founder of Redux and environmentalist, will lead a class in preparations for survival. Sessions will be split in between technical demonstrations and group discussions focusing on the signs of impending doom, the traditional and religious views on the subject, and the extreme recycling techniques that can be used in an urban environment for the production of energy, food, and water when those resources become scarce. By the end (of the class) students will have all the necessary information and resources to develop a self-sustaining radically simplified independent existence.
