Welcome to PRAXISfrom wikipedia: Praxis is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, practiced, embodied, or realized. “Praxis” may also refer to the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realizing, or practicing ideas. On the first day of each month, one of us will post a prompt theme (picked from a group-generated list). Anything big and juicy we can sink our brains into and create responses that would be posted to the blog by the last day of each month. All media is welcome, from typed up thoughts on the theme, to scanned art, to videos of dance/performance art. There is no expectation that this should take mass amounts of time.
