The name sounds vaguely like a catalog of clippings from the back of the Village Voice.  Fortunately it’s not:

The Archive of Desire documents evidence of everyday visionary imagination. Ideas for a future thriving sustainable society, from the practical to the impossible, are collected and documented in physical and digital form.

These posts are snippets of other people’s utopias.  Taken together, they read like a map towards a world I’d like to be living in.  The School for Creative Activism teaches that a kernel of Utopia is present in all effective creative organizing, and the Archive of Desire reminds me why.  It’s awesome.
