We need a new ‘big story’. A mobilising discourse that contains an critical power analysis and a radical way forward. A narrative that allows us to tear down the old and promote the new. Commons Network believes commons are part of this new story. Art can trigger people, provoke them to question the system and its cultural hegemony. Art can give us new discursive space and creative freedom to think differently. Commons Network works with artists and art institutions to curate events, immersive experiences and art exhibitions to imagine a new future.
