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 an example – it’s a relatively recent talk I gave at a UBC symposium: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWHpQGD8GOY


I also work with a number of groups  around the world on 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.

I have a particular set of experiences, approaches and philosophies around this work – please do not hesitate to drop me a line and we can discuss.
