What spaces and structures does collective self-organization need?
Collective self-organisation needs shared spaces and structural frameworks. These spaces will foster encounters and allow us to share knowledge and resources with one another. Sharing responsibilities for a space will increase the sense of community and a strong community will succeed in pushing forward demands. We need spaces of togetherness, but also for individual recharge. We need Spaces for experimentation. And we need Space that is set on collaboratively decided rules. The physical space of collective self organisation needs to be fixed in a way that we can count on it to always be there. Still it would need to be some kind of space that is flexible and allows for a variety of uses and processes. The space needs to be physically accessible for everyone. Physically shared spaces could take the form of a common kitchen, assembly area or library. The potential of a common space starts when it is performed. The conditions for a healing space lie in its commonality in shared resources as materials, a transparent and participatory planning process and collectively set values, based on equity and equality.
