STIR: Volume One Book Launch
At a moment when alternatives are not obvious to all and most responses to austerity are all too predictable, this crowdfunded collection of articles and interviews from the first years of Stir Magazine looks at how inspiring and innovative groups are taking cooperative and community-led ideas from the margins to the mainstream. More than 160 people were involved in getting this book authored, edited, illustrated, designed, crowdfunded and published!

with Mat Callahan
Music is a collective activity which activates collectivities. The sounds produced are only one result,the others being the communities formed to make and enjoy music and the skills acquired in the process. Sharing is necessary to all three. Owning music is impossible. Yet owning music is the legal basis for the criminalization of file sharing. Musician and author Mat Callahan is calling for the abolition of copyright. Callahan will discuss its replacement by new means designed to unite music makers and music lovers in a common struggle against the Music Industry in particular and Intellectual Property regimes in general.

JUST DO IT lifts the lid on climate change activism and the daring troublemakers who have crossed the line to become modern day outlaws. Emily James’ film follows these activists as they blockade factories, attack coal power stations and glue themselves to the trading floors of international banks despite the very real threat of arrest.
