October’s Theme is Ethos

Ethos is that specific quality that defines a place, time, or group of people. When you step into a room, a busy downtown, or a community gathering, you intuit its spirit. A messy DIY space invites experimentation and mistakes, a lush city park promises tranquility to anyone who seeks it. Maybe you even know of a monthly event where everyone is welcome and everything is free of charge. 

At its core is a paradox: despite the specificity of an ethos, it’s impossible to pinpoint or trace to a specific origin. What honed that distinctive sensibility is long gone, vanished into myth. 

With our actions and words, we embody these values and beliefs beyond conscious knowing. In turn, we subtly shape the ethos that our descendants — of family, of place — will receive from us.
Ethos is alchemic, ineffable, and infinitely ponderable across place and culture. What ways of moving through the world did you inherit?

Our Asheville chapter chose this month’s exploration of Ethos and Colin Sutherland created the illustration.

🌬 Forms of "Ethos"

Vera Gotseva - Lomovera suspected that our collective psyche had evolved over the course of the pandemic. She sought out mental health practitioners to describe what shifts they had been seeing, and how they manage to deal both with our anxiety and their own. Read our blog to learn more about Vera’s "How We Live Now" project and other types of ethos in this month’s round-up.

🎧 DJ Jim Q’s Playlist: This month DJ Jim Q is spinning tunes of Ethos. From Sly and the Family Stone’s “Stand,” to Bunny Wailer’s “Fight Against Conviction,” to Iggy Pop’s “New Values,” these songs of conviction, spirit, and values will give us something to believe in, or at least something to listen to.
🎨 Meet Our Illustrator: Colin Sutherland is the co-founder of the risograph print shop Woolly Press in Asheville, North Carolina. His illustration and print work is inspired by the ecology of Western North Carolina, visual narratives, and the constraints that are inherent to riso printing.
