We are Commoners shop

Embrace the Commons and the commons way of thinking!  We celebrate that some things belong to us all and with co-operation and collective responsibility we can protect and sustain these for the benefit of all communities.  Skills, knowledge, tools, materials and the natural world are resources that artists took actions to highlight through their work and were featured in our We are Commoners exhibition.

Now we can spread the positive message of commons thinking; get hold of one of our collectible artist designed enamel pin badges, made in Birmingham by Fattorini or head out with our Commons Sense shoulder bag!

The We are Commoners exhibition catalogue is also available.
