Greater Helena Gives 2022 – Supporting Philosophy in the Community
Woot-Woot! Greater Helena Gives is right around the corner! And this year we’re raising funds for two things: our free community programs AND an exciting new program we’re hoping to launch called COMMUNITY HUBS. Learn about both here! Greater Helena Gives takes place on May 5th-6th (6pm-6pm). As you show your love for Helena non-profits, please leave room for philosophy. Your donations help build a thinking community. Yahooo!!!
“Philosophy In & By the Community”: Merlin & Helena Community Members featured in Vernon Press Anthology
A 2021 Vernon Press anthology series edited by Stephen Kekoa Miller featuring eight chapters about doing philosophy in innovative ways, both in the schools and the community at large. In our chapter, “Philosophy In & By the Community,” we explore how Merlin CCC — with the help & support of community — has taken shape in interesting, delightful, and unexpected ways. In the process, we discuss our approach to philosophy, the kind of work we do, and some of its characteristics…as well as the significance & beauty of community & place. Learn more here!

May 2019 Philosophy Walk: “KNOW THY CITY”
Titled “KNOW THY CITY” (in homage to the Delphic maxim to “KNOW THYSELF”), our May walk was an invitation to explore a bit ourselves and the city.” Featuring guest speaker, historian, artist, & urban designer, Dennis McCahon, our group roamed the city of Helena and observed the ways in which design contributes to experiences, how we “move through” our built environments…and, equally, how they move through us.
