The Insurgent Power of the Commons

— The Cube
The commons as a radical way to change the world
time:20:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

From co-housing and agroecology to fisheries and open-source everything, people are increasingly using "commoning" to emancipate themselves from a predatory market-state system.

The Cube Cinema is a great example of a commons, so we are very happy to have David Bollier over from America to give us an overview of the latest thinking on the commons based on his new book Free, Fair, and Alive which presents a foundational re-thinking of the commons — the self-organized social system that humans have used for millennia to meet their needs. It offers a compelling vision of a future beyond the dead-end binary of capitalism versus socialism that has almost brought the world to its knees.

The book is a penetrating cultural critique, table-pounding political treatise, and practical playbook. Highly readable and full of colorful stories, coverage includes:

Internal dynamics of commoning
How the commons worldview opens up new possibilities for change
Role of language in reorienting our perceptions and political strategies
Seeing the potential of commoning everywhere.

The talk will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.

Essential event for all those people interested in the how to change the world. 

There will be limited tickets on the door.
