Workshops and MasterclassesRethinking culture as a common good: challenges and hopes?
The commons call for the collective management of shared resources. But more than that, the commons propose another way of inhabiting the world, emphasising the way in which we are all interconnected and thus inviting us to re-explore the notion of the common good. As territories of experimentation, what can the commons do for culture today? Can culture be crossed by their logic? If so, to satisfy what hopes? By overcoming what challenges? Let’s look together at the answers we can give to these questions.
