In collaboration with the OWS Forum on the Commons in New York (Feb 16-18)
Free online workshop on growing a Commons-inspired Occupy theory of a collective action
we’ve just opened a free online workshop on growing a Commons-inspired Occupy theory of a collective action, here: http://thefutureofoccupy.org/strategy-and-commons-workshop/
Occupy is redefining everything in social life, including what a workshop is. For us, gone are the days when a workshop simply meant a space with tools, workbenches and supplies, or a time to spend on listening to a sage on the stage.
At Occupy, we reconnect with and renew what a “workshop” was in the pre-industrial era: a supportive environment, where people assemble to invent, prototype and produce useful objects. In the digital era, it also means developing useful ideas together, making connections, and co-creating something of value to the community.
Please visit the workshop page http://thefutureofoccupy.org/strategy-and-commons-workshop/ and if you like what you see there, join us in this action-oriented strategic learning conversation.
