"Thrive With Less" Premiere

Tired of living in a culture of excess, a small group of MSU students, including RCAH student Matt Radick, decided to live with less through a series of challenges in the areas of food, transportation, housing, community, material possessions, and personal passion. They documented their experiences living minimally, culminating in the hour-long documentary Thrive With Less.

Join the filmmakers at Gone Wired Cafe for this premiere event, which includes live music from Jeff Pianki and Doug Mains & The City Folk at 6 p.m., a screening of the film at 7 p.m., and a post-film discussion.

"I hope the film makes people think about their every day decisions," says Radick. "We're not necessarily asking people to take on challenges like we did, but just to look critically at their own lives and to see if there is excess holding them back."
