Colourful Commons

Colourful Commons explores what a magical creature of the 'Commons' might be, as we sing it into life.

This magical creature will be coming out of hibernation at the Banff Centre in the wonderful Rocky Mountains, with the help of participants on Banff Research in Culture's On The Commons; or, Believing-Feeling-Acting Together residency program. The creature will be travelling around Canada during the summer 2011, and invites you to contribute too:

  • What does 'the commons' mean to you, at its best? Common land? Creative commons? Community? Common experience? Common goals? Or maybe something more personal... a sense, smell, touch, taste... an inspiration or a vision, an idea?
  • Notice what you notice and imagine what the magical creature of this 'Commons at its best' is like...
  • Make a colour grid to express the magic of the Commons (use the free Gatherer iPhone App)
  • Quote Cache Key 30003
