Creating Everyday Utopias Through Play

Everyday utopias mean that instead of dreaming about better worlds, participants seek to create them in different ways through their life and work. Davina Cooper, author of Everyday Utopias, examines innovative projects from speakers’ corners to crowd-sourced constitutions. She argues that these often playful, improvised activities challenge taken-for-granted notions of how markets and states work. They also suggest new progressive ways of performing them.
