A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Featuring short interview with Kaeridwyn, a newcomer to be, about the theater classes at TLC (the learning community) which is based opposite Dana. Since January, she has been giving theater classes to children interested in theater and acting, working towards a performance of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Kaeridwyn has kept the lines as much is possible in original Iambic pentameter. A Midsummer Night's Dream comedy play by William Shakespeare,  which is believed to have been written between 1590 and 1597. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and Hippolyta. It follows the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals), who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.

Teachers Center

Unofficial inauguration two weeks back of Teachers Center at SAIIER building in Town Hall was for the teachers, parents and children a joyfully occasion and a fruit of long years of integral education in Auroville.
Although the idea for it in the beginning was to provide pool of people who can train all those who are already teaching but are not really qualified as teachers and to all those who would like to be teachers, in time grown into more - center should be not only for training but also resource and networking center; it should connect schools, teachers, people, ideas in Auroville as well from outside. They are planning to have workshops, conversations on integral education on regular bases, and at the same time educational materials are in preparation.
Ground breaking work for Teachers Center is a dedicated work of Maya, Francoise, Lisbeth and Heidi, who says amongst other " Integral Education has to be understood as it is practiced"...

There's No Subject For Me


A recent graduate from Kalikasan High School in Philippines, Kim Sun Myung visits Auroville for a spot survey for South Korean students. He attended an alternative system of education and aims to set up something similar in an otherwise stringent structure back in South Korea. He provides a micro view of the different options that students and recent graduates can choose outside of a particular system and the inspiration that can be derived from an experimental space like Auroville. We met at a dinner with a friend, and what he said about students needing ''happiness'' and feeling more connected to vocational options resounded with other such conversations with students in Auroville from across the globe. He talks about the importance of traveling as a learning experience and why he does not want to go to college. While a lot of socio-cultural factors come into the picture when considering these options, it is nevertheless refreshing to find voices expressing an interest in community life as well as aiming to get involved in the education systems in their countries.

Future School and AVRadio

The Future School children collaborated in creating advertising for their School and the Solar Kitchen in a hands on approach to be introduced to AurovilleRadio's work, the seminar involved writing content, recording and editing sound.

Mud Walls at TLC

The Learning Community's base camp is located on the road to Dana opposite Transition School, it is a hands-on do-it-yourself adventure school. A recent announcement invites "All those enjoying getting muddy hands are most welcome to join us. Just drop in for an hour, a day, or for all three days!" TLC has been busy building the campus and the mud walling event is for the new composting toilet walls made of mud, bamboo, glass bottles and other materials. Auroville Radio tries to share the atmosphere and friendly enthusiasm that physical collective work often brings.
