About Liminal Lab Open Learning Registration & Membership Protocol:

This registration form allows you to sign up for Liminal Lab programming a number of ways.

Identify a level of energy/resource exchange that is appropriate to your circumstances, using the comparison model on the course description as a guide. We will not ask you to justify your selection in any way. However, do keep in mind that these programs are funded entirely through the funds collected here and are not supported by private or institutional resources!


1-Time Payment [single program]:  

Select this option at the rate you've chosen and submit a single payment for this program.

Weekly Payments [single program]: 

Select this option at the rate you've chosen and set up weekly payments for the duration of this program.

1-Time Payment [membership]:

Select this option at the one-time donation level of your choice to become a Member of Liminal Lab! Starting with our Spring 2021 season, members are invited to sign up for any Liminal Lab programs as a member with no additional future fees! Liminal Lab memberships can also support other members / participants signing up for programs at no or low costs, ensuring the most support for the labor of our facilitators!

Most importantly, becoming a Liminal Lab member is a commitment to supporting the autonomous, nonhierarchical, anti-capitalist collective model we're building to sustain the fallout of the years ahead and remain independent from the donor-driven infrastructures strangling so many of our institutions.

Other Recurring Payment [membership]:

Select this option at the recurring weekly or monthly donation level of your choice to become a Member of Liminal Lab! Starting with our Spring 2021 season, members are invited to sign up for any Liminal Lab programs as a member with no additional future fees! Liminal Lab memberships can also support other members / participants signing up for programs at no or low costs, ensuring the most support for the labor of our facilitators!

Most importantly, becoming a Liminal Lab member is a commitment to supporting the autonomous, nonhierarchical, anti-capitalist collective model we're building to sustain the fallout of the years ahead and remain independent from the donor-driven infrastructures strangling so many of our institutions.

Volunteering / Barter / No-fee option:

We believe there needs to be an option to participate in these programs at no cost for those for whom any expenditure of resources would be a burden. Again, we will not ask for you to qualify your reasons if you choose this option.

However: we believe in energetic exchange and this system is in fact maintained by precarious community members with limited resources, so if your schedule allows we'd love it if you were able to help the OS/LL thrive by supporting this community in another way. If you opt for a no-fee option, and are able, please note this interest and availability in the field below!

System transparency and comparison:

80% of Liminal Lab program fees go straight to facilitators, and the OS is entirely volunteer run, with all income returning to directly supporting projects, production, and operational costs. Compare Liminal Lab's financial model to the rate for similar programs at most orgs and nonprofits, where facilitators receive 50% or less, or to academic institutions, where students are paying tens of thousands of dollars to be taught by contingent faculty struggling to survive on paltry fractions of those costs, most of which sustain management salaries and the physical plant.
The OS & Liminal Lab is built to be as agile as possible, BY DESIGN, and as a result only 20% of the funds collected are used by the OS to cover operational costs of the program. The OS has never and will never charged submission or contest fees to sustain its operations or compromised its ethics in the interest of being legible to wealthy donors or board members. Our board is entirely comprised of advisory community members with no financial obligation.

It is a big help to the limited admin capabilities of our volunteers if you are able to submit payment upon registration for this program. If you have selected a payment option above, but are not paying at this time, and/or need to select a no-payment option at this time, please indicate this in the field above and email operator@theoperatingsystem.org with a note about your registration. Thank you!
