The reading group is on a break. Here’s some of the stuff we discussed in the past:

Our aim is create a safe non-confrontational space to think and discuss the things we find interesting, problematic, exciting…. in what we we do.

Some weeks there are more pieces listed than others – don’t feel you have to have read all – or even any of them – to participate. Also, please feel free to come with suggestions of things to read or additions that you feel might complement the texts already selected for a given week. Texts will be available in printed form at the Factory, two weeks before we are due to talk about them. Most are also available online by clicking the titles below:
