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
People sent us material relating to green issues, land ownership, social
relations, the internet, copyright, software and a whole host of other
COMMONSense was edited by Dougald Hine, with art direction by Anne-Marie
The publication is being made available under a Creative Commons
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
