Dual power in the college Patterns in the pattern language are formulated as (descriptions of) transformative practices. The practice of the college is thus intrinsically implicated in the production if dual power. Here we consider how the college federation articulates with practices of the mutual sector/civil society.
Dual power is 'on the curriculum' of the college: patterns directly addressing elements of dual power are within the pattern language. But at the same time, as a federation of practice in the (cultural) commons, the college is woven practically into systems of emergent dual power. The federated DisCOs are involved in the direct production of radical culture, capability in care work, literacy, the organisation of material provisioning in the real economy, and practices of skilful, in-context valuing, stewarding and affiliating in the direct production of radically transformed society and economy.
