PROGRAMMES

Living Commons is a not-for-profit socially engaged arts organisation that was established in order to found and maintain co-operative, humane, democratic living, working and learning schemes for persons in precarious living situations through creative practices and community building.

Living Commons is implemented through collectively-led, social ecological arts and cultural programmes that enable those in precarious living situations equal participation in social, cultural, economic and political life through the initiation of autonomously-run collective design programmes.

Through creative cultural practices, processes, engagements and outputs, Living Commons promotes a sense of community concern, health, wellbeing and care for the housing, living needs of disadvantaged persons.

Living Commons designs and produces schemes that present a holistic framing of the co-reliance and inter-dependence between our environment and our social well-being.
