"Helping in the work of creation": John Ruskin and William Morris Today
After the 2008 economic collapse, Financial Times columnist Andrew Hill wondered, "Where's John Ruskin when we need him?" For a growing number of people, the ideals of Ruskin and his most famous student, William Morris, seem to offer vital and wise guidance as we face our many current crises. For Morris, Ruskin had identified "a new road on which the world should travel"a vision needed now more than ever.

Following on the success of last year's symposium "'No Wealth But Life': Why John Ruskin Matters Today," the Berkeley Hillside Club Round Table and The Guild of St. George this year explore Morris as well as Ruskin, focusing on three themes both men saw as intimately interwoven and foundational to human life and to civilization: nature, work and architecture. This day-long event will feature a keynote address by Clive Wilmer, Master of the Guild of St George, the community founded by Ruskin in 1872 with the aim of making "some small piece of English ground beautiful, peaceful and fruitful," and an example for the world. Please join us in what promises to be an inspiring and illuminating day.
