About

Blooming in Space is a growing network of autonomous communities committed to radically transforming the way we live. We identify specifically with horizontal, anti-oppressive, self-organizing, directly participatory practices as we work to contribute to the movements for community autonomy and radical sustainability. At the moment, it is primarily a resource page toward these ends.

Specifically, we seek:
•To create, develop and evolve locally integrated living systems, social structures, and ultimately entire infrastructures that can meet our own and our neighbors’ needs in ways that are deeply ecological, community-controlled, and autonomous from oppressive, centralized institutions.
•To facilitate the intentional design of such systems and structures by the communities who will use them, using horizontal, anti-oppressive processes and emphasizing social justice and solidarity.
•To offer a variety of examples of working systems that serve as viable models for such intentional, autonomous development, with an emphasis on models that are being put into practice now.
•To make accessible the tools and resources necessary for communities of all kinds to design and build their own such systems. These resources are free with a focus on low-tech, low-cost, do-it-together technologies and models.
•To build an organized network of already established communities that identify with this purpose, creating a space for dialogue & collaboration among diverse communities, cultures, subcultures and movements, and facilitating the sharing of ideas, tools, information, and resources among them. Together, to build a more visible movement.
•Finally, to catalyze the formation of new communities that share our purpose, and to make these possibilities more widely available and accessible to mainstream culture.

This statement is under constant review. We encourage your feedback and suggestions on our wiki and discussion boards at we.riseup.net. Thanks!

    Hello! I am a filmmaker and would like to plan a trip this Spring to various modern day intentional communities (and of course this is of personal interest to me and I consider getting some land with friends the dream- so good work!). I found this site because I was searching one homestead in particular that I had visited. I would be happy to visit for a few days or a week and would be happy to contribute by working during my stay. Obviously I would be filming so it would be best if that does not make you uncomfortable! If anyone is interested in hosting 3 people and sharing your story with us, I would be happy to start to plan out this trip and see what great interesting projects people are working on! carlybodmer@gmail.com
