The Tapestry of the Commons is rich in ideas, but financially.... well, its a common problem. We have so many projects we would love to put out into the world, and with your contributions these projects could each become a reality.
The Radio Programs could become a fully developed, ongoing series of shows...weekly at first, but eventually a daily Tapestry of the Commons 2 minute audio spot on stations across the country.
We hope to convene day-long Commons Workshops to explore the history of enclosure, ideas and strategies for reclaiming our common wealth, and train trainers to make their own interactive presentations of the Tapestry of the Commons.
So much material has been gathered and written, that a Tapestry of the Commons Book, or at least a booklet, seems a needed additional outreach tool.
Teachers have asked for Tapestry of the Commons materials for younger students, and many groups have requested Kits of the Tapestry to help them make presentations in their communities.
The Tapestry of the Commons Website could become an interactive commons hub with much more valuable information, conversations and connections.
So, if you are drawn to work on the Commons and see the potential of these projects, please consider donating something to help us move forward.
The Alliance for Democracy will accept funds earmarked for the Tapestry of the Commons.
