Freeschool Community Forum
by The Freeschool Community
The Freeschool Community of Olympia, serving the Olympia area for over seven years, has partnered with several progressive organizations to form the 'Peace Communities' including: the Mutualist Project, members of the Z Media Institute (ZMI) 2007 Alumni, the Olympia Ecovillage/We Invite You, The Beauty of Barter, Imagine Seven, the Organizers of the Fifth Annual A World Beyond Capitalism Conference, and organizers of the Do-It-Yourself Multimedia Creation Center.
Peace Communities is seeking more partner organizations to work towards sharing space in Olympia. We would like to share the cost of a house, or transform a downtown or West Side warehouse into a shared space with other progressive organizations and businesses. This strategy was successfully accomplished by the Rhizome Collective. For more information see http://www.rhizomecollective.org
In addition to rental space, we can help design a website for your group, offer the use of free-of-charge shared web-hosting space, and space in our newspaper, "Natural Learning" that has a circulation of 5,000 issues.
The idea to create a housing and community space collective in Olympia has been in the research, cost analysis and forming process for almost two years. It is our desire to rent a space as early as Spring 2009.
Our next public forum, Creating a Housing and Community Space Use Collective in Olympia will be held at Traditions Café on Friday January 30, 2009 from 7 - 9 p.m. Please join us for an evening of sharing ideas at Traditions, 300 5th Avenue SW.
The event is free of charge and snacks will be served. We welcome all individuals, organizations and progressive businesses to participate in these conversations.
