Solecast: Woodbine, An Experiment Hub At the End of the World

On this episode of the Solecast, Sole speaks with the autonomous community space Woodbine about their project and the ideas that drive it.

In this episode of the Solecast I chat with folks from Woodbine NYC.  Woodbine is an experimental hub in Queens that has been going for 5 years strong. Its hard to pin down what they do to any specific ideological persuasion, instead they draw from a wide range of influences and backgrounds to try to find new ways of looking at things to the skills to meet the challenges that face us. They host a multitude of events from poetry readings, educational events, assemblies, skill shares, gardening and too many things to list.  At the time of this interview they are fundraising for 2019 operations, please consider donating something here and follow them on fedbook / twitter.

In this conversation we talk about:

  • Why spaces like this are so important under Trump
  • How Woodbine came about & the thinking that went into it
  • The concept of the anthropocene and why it serves as a good way to frame things for this century
  • Concepts of revolution vs autonomy
  • What there is to learn from the models of Rojava & Chiapas.
  • The importance of breaking out of an ideological approach and pointing to specific liberatory practices
  • Amazon HQ2 coming to Queens and what this means
  • Silicon Valleys role in our society
  • The importance of “sharing”
