I tour and lecture pretty much year-round.  To book me just drop me a line and I am happy to consider most anything. I talk to community groups, municipalities, schools,bookstores and universities, give public lectures, double them up with workshops, organize day-long events – let me know what you have in mind and I can tell you whats worked well in the past. I charge on a sliding scale and am always glad to make good money but am kind of negotiating softie.

Here’s a couple of recent examples of talks:




I also work with a number of groups  around the world on commons/commoning, social space projects : existing or proposed community centres, schools, youth centres, colleges, institutes, co-ops, squats, libraries, and public spaces of all kinds. I am happy to consult, share ideas, strategize or help out when/how I can, usually in person, but sometimes over distance. I charge as per above for this kind of work.
