The 2013 Keene State College Symposium, Finding Your Place in the Evolving Commons, is about understanding, locating, and taking responsibility for our places in the public spaces we set aside for care and cultivation of the resources, public and private, that we share in community with others. The commons refers to this space, recognizing that its reality is often rooted in but not limited to physical locality and literal presence.
This year’s Symposium is organized around a set of questions that include the following:
- What’s at stake in the commons?
- Where is the commons in danger? What can you do about it?
- What is your responsibility for tending the commons?
- What do we owe each other?
All events are free and open to the public. We hope you’ll join us November 3 – 8, 2013, and for ongoing related events.

The committee welcomes proposals for individual projects and linked activities. Please contact a member of the steering committee with your questions or submit a formal project proposal.
Meet you on, in, or at the commons.
