    October 28, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    Women's Center for Creative Work, 2425 Glover Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90031, USA

    Sarita Dougherty and David Whitaker started their DIY PhD program post-graduate school in 2014, while seeking a rigorous and creative higher education program that met their embodied, spiritual and intellectual thirst for knowledge. An answer to Western and mind-centered institutional learning, the first cohort met weekly at different sites around Los Angeles. The 2018-2019 school year is their fifth year doing the DIY PhD.

    Each DIY PhD program meets students wherever they are in life; the program's structure reforms constantly to meet the cohort’s needs for personal and artistic growth. The fall DIY PHD cohort at WCCW will locate and express their own DIY Educations through guided meditations, creative exercises, and intentional mapping so that by early December, practitioners will be set up on their own DIY PhD paths of learning. The biweekly class is offered on a sliding scale based on what students can afford.
