I was a researcher (gleaner) in Feminist tools for commoning on the forthcoming report and platform 'A Home for Commons' which will be the culmination of the 3 year long, cross European project Cultural Creative Spaces and Cities spearheaded by the cultural centre network Trans Europa Halles.
The resulting report and online toolkit can be found here:
In June 2020 I participated in the policy co-creating experiment Co-Creation Lab Commons Sense: Let’s Create a Bottom-Up European Democracy
And in October 2020 I participated in the follow up experiment Common Ground: Building a Foundation for Homes of Commons, contributing further to discussing and developing the methods for applying some of the ideas from June's project.
With funding from the Canadian Arts Council the collective experimented with new technology, tools, and associated behaviours in developing best practice for collaborating and co-creating. We invited guests to guide and evaluate our process.
-As a collective we support each other in learning new skills while drawing on each others experience and differing professional networks.
Our work will was first aimed at learning together and sharing our learning in bigger circle beyond ourselves.
The initial first phase concluded 6 themes dispatches and a community talk for independent creative producers.
