Bi-weekly; Week 2; Thursday; 12:15 pm – 2:15 pm
Location: Tartu (G1)

Part reminiscence and part historical gaze, this workshop has something for everyone!  Rarely has an era of history been as influential as the sixties.  Whether a walk down memory lane or a dig into the history of the era, this workshop will unearth surprising insights.  Was this the best of times or the worst?  What is the legacy of the swinging sixties and how did it shape our lives today whether in the culture, music, art, relationships, therapeutic drugs, psychotherapy, activist movements and more?  Join us to explore the influences that shaped the sixties and their wide-ranging impact.  Each member will pick one aspect of this era for their presentation from a list provided by the facilitators or one of their own choosing.
