Originating with the city’s counterculture and free spaces, Amsterdam Alternative stands for collective action and radical political debate for the sake of a desirable future for the many, not the few.
Last two years we have been very busy creating a webdocu about collective ownership. The project (which is a combination of video, audio, photography and text) portrays people and organisations that use a collective ownership construction for housing, free spaces, agriculture, nature, energy, care and other things. It is an inspiration document as well as an archive and manual for everyone interested in collective ownership and the cooperative movement.
Check out the full webdocu here
The aim of this project is to liberate real estate from the property market through acquisition, in order to create new free spaces in Amsterdam. Vrij Beton = Collective Ownership.
Check our photo/video/music page for photo reports, video content and the AA music mixes.
In the AA agenda you’ll find the public programming from our participating venues.
