We don't need money or glory. We don't need a lot of people. A small group is enough to establish the nucleus of Visionary Society in any community. We will assist you every step along the way.
What can you do?
→ Get started by selecting any Quest, any impossible question or beautiful conundrum that must be resolved. (Explain how to promote this.)
There are three types of Gatherings:
Meetings, to explore any part of a Quest.
Actions, to introduce the results of a Quest path to the public.
Celebration of the Good, an experiment in entertainment, a new way to pass the time with strangers and friends.
Post newsletters at 5 - 10 businesses and public spaces around town. Visionary Society provides a universal edition. If you prefer, you may add local content, selecting Quests or Proposals, meetings or actions, to promote.
Add a short article, writing it yourself or with the help of paid or unpaid volunteers.
Our goal is mainly to present your community in a new way, as a question, a challenge and a choice, and to make this clear and inescapable. Visionary Society is proof that we do have power, if we choose to use it. Go ahead, use it!
→ Create article
→ Promote a Proposal.
