Neighbourhood Commons with Torange Khonsari

Sunday 18 June, 15:00 – 17:00 BST | Start location: Stovegrove Community Trust, 5 Hayling Way, Edgware HA8 8BN. Book via Eventbrite

Join designer and academic, Torange Khonsari as she explains and explores the notion and power of “commons” and “commoning” and the role they can play in community organising to bring about social change in their local neighbourhoods. Hosted at Stonegrove Community Trust, the workshop will discuss the opportunities and challenges of putting in place commons structures through a series of case studies before exploring how commoning could be applied to Edgware. The session will end by creating a walk that could re-enact the beating of the bounds in Barnet, a centuries-old tradition, which celebrates the town’s landmarks and creates a mental map of the town’s boundaries.
