THIS LAUNCH TAKES PLACE AT SPACE STUDIOS, MARE STREET,HACKNEY, LONDON - 
www.spacestudios.org.uk

Many thanks to Space Studios for hosting this event.

Dougald Hine (editor of COMMONSense, Co-founder The Dark Mountain 
Project), Jim Previtt (Space Studios) & Jake Harries (Arts Programmer, 
Access Space).

What is COMMONSense?

It is a 62 page magazine created from submissions to a call for pieces 
which reflect a theme connecting the activities of Access Space to the 
wider world, "the commons". We asked for prose (stories, thoughts, book 
reviews, bibliographies...), poetry, photographs, cartoons, drawings or 
graphics.

People sent us material relating to green issues, land ownership, social 
relations, the internet, copyright, software and a whole host of other 
subjects.

COMMONSense was edited by Dougald Hine, with art direction by Anne-Marie 
Culhane.

Dougald Hine of describes it like this:

"The theme of the issue is < COMMONSense >. Not so long ago, the only 
people who talked about "the commons" were historians; today, the
language of the commons is central to debates around intellectual 
property, environmental protection, and resistance to globalisation.
These international debates find their echoes here in South Yorkshire - 
in the activities of Access Space, recycling waste technology and 
promoting Open Source software, or in Grow Sheffield's efforts to build 
local food networks and seed city centre wasteland. Can talk of "the 
commons" help us find common ground between these kinds of projects? 
Does using the same words mean we've found a common language - or can it 
disguise different meanings and intentions

If you'd like a hardcopy, COMMONSense is avilable from Access Space for 
£4.00 + £1.50 p&p
