An open collective is a voluntary and dynamic group of people sharing common goals and values, combining the scale and instantaneous connectivity of digital platforms with the kinship of physical space and face-to-face interaction. As permeable hybrid physical/digital networks, open collectives are designed to expand and contract in both members and functions — economic, environmental, and/or social — and encourage new forms of sharing.
Collective dimensions seek to quantify the qualities of open collectives: the economic motivation, membership/size, porosity and openness to new members, the platform on which the collective exists, and the manner in which the collective is governed.Explore the Archive Add a Collective
