About the event

At FAN, we're keen to apply commoning to clothing culture. We want to counteract the forces of the market that keep the industry growing and build alternatives based on sufficiency. This month, we'll be reading David Bollier's new book The Commoner's Catalog for Changemaking which provides tools for the transition ahead. This book is a guide to the initiatives already underway: commons projects, books, website and activism. You can read the book online for free or purchase it in print:

"Amidst the daunting challenges of our time, there is some great news: The commons is rising. Looking beyond the market and state, commoners are applying their social imaginations and collective power to build a new world of possibilities."

We'll discuss:

  • Personal highlights and takeways from the reading
  • How the content of the reading is useful to FAN
  • Whether the content of the reading differs from FAN’s orientations
  • Whether the style of the reading is useful to review for its pros and cons relative to FAN’s ambitions

David Bollier is Director of the Reinventing the Commons Program at the Schumacher Center. He is an activist, scholar and author of Think Like a Commoner, coauthor of Free, Fair and Alive: The Insurgent Power of the Commons, and cofounder of the Commons Stategies Group. Bollier hosts the monthly podcast Frontiers of Commoning and blogs at
