The column to the right says it all in a nutshell:
The extraordinary consists of moments, events, and things that unexpectedly
catch us off guard - changing how we see the our lives. It defies order,
challenges rules, and invites us rethink everything!
Extraordinarium is all about sharing, thinking about, and getting imaginative about:
the extraordinary, the fantastical, and/or the supernatural
It is an open-minded, thoughtful consideration of experiences, events and things
that don't necessarily fit into conventions and certainty. Things that provoke
confusion and wonder.
Among the major themes that Extraordinarium seeks to explore:
the supernatural, paranormal, and Fortean
coping with uncertainty and the unexpected
travels and journeys
ideas and imagination
The key ways through which the extraordinary is considered include:
people’s extraordinary experiences
studies of people’s extraordinary experiences and extraordinary things
how the extraordinary relates to imagination and ideas
There are really five major things that blend together in this theme:
whether it be another
culture, something in the
natural world, or the
DISRUPTIONS in our
everyday routines that force
us to act, cope, or even
survive in unexpected
imagination, constructs of
reality, and the senses.
JOURNEYS in which one
moves outside of their
comfort zone, of what is
QUESTS that move beyond
everyday possibilities and
Like the above Venn diagram, these categories overlap.
When moving outside of the ordinary, beyond rules that people have made,
anything is possible.
