Wonder Land: how to build an organisation / community that exists outside of capitalist ideology whilst existing physically within its boundaries?

Number 18 of the principles of open source software building struck a chord with me. It states this: “to solve an interesting problem, start by finding a problem that is interesting to you”. I phrased the problem that is interesting to me: how to build an organisation / community that exists outside of capitalist ideology whilst existing physically within its boundaries? And this is what I came up with:

  • no gas
  • no electricity
  • no food products
  • nothing bought with money
  • all materials found or someone else’s excess donated freely and unconditionally
  • we go to it and use it and come away again
  • it’s free to use
  • anyone can use it at any time

Where? If it’s an art project will the council agree to the use of a piece of land?

What’s needed

  • Land
  • Materials
  • Plans/help in making safe structures – how have other artists overcome this?

An open source meeting with people interested in collaborating?

Could cycle to Prestex House and talk to whoever is there about it.
