About

Design for Cultural Commons of London Metropolitan University is informed by an idea which has been around for hundreds of years. In a contemporary context of much inequality, the Commons discourse introduces models of sharing.

Overview

Design for Cultural Commons course of London Metropolitan University is about the assets that belong to everyone, forming resources that should benefit all, rather than being enclosed to just a few. You'll learn about how these shared assets are created, governed, used and distributed without overuse and abuse.

In the UK, commons, and co-production are referred to in government policies and tenders and are currently being discussed in the EU parliament. Beyond teaching you to initiate your commons projects and practice, you'll learn how to raise funds and make your practice sustainable in the long term.

The course will support you in gaining membership to the International Association for the Study of the Commons. This will enable you to gain awards, as well as access international collaboration opportunities and platforms for knowledge exchange following your MA.

We'll support you in applying for mentoring programmes following your MA, to develop your practice/initiative into a viable social enterprise.
