Division of Radical Giving - specializing in contributions of all kinds, to everyone's amazement. this ranges from materials about your collective practice, to ideas, contacts, information, sources, knowledge... it may take the form of time, creative effort, skill sharing, shelter, teachings...
Center for Getting Ugly - dedicated to the research, practice and sustained experimentation with conflict as essential political activity. the Center seeks to develop individual and collective capabilities for the production of radical politics. must embrace conflict as an essential, productive aspect of collaboration. must be perpetually dissatisfied with, and suspicious of, existing aesthetic or semantic strategies.
Council of Peripheral Visionaries - develop possible and often tangential futures.
