Cube Cola (Standing on the Hands of Giants) is an open source soft drink, hand-manufactured at the Cube Cinema in Bristol UK by the unincorporated partnership of Kayle Brandon and Kate Rich. The recipe was reverse-engineered from that of a stickily secretive, market-dominating drink, a world-scale project made possible with the help of a broad church of copyright activists, cake-makers, radical historians, colour scientists and soft drink enthusiasts. Cube Cola is served at the Cube Cinema bar and distributed around the globe in concentrate form.
Brave New Alps combine participatory research methods with radical pedagogy, feral approaches to community economies and lots of DIY making and organising. They create spaces for making, learning and exchanging and work on a 40-year research project that focuses on supporting and creating community economies and commons in the Italian Alps. Currently, they are in the process of co-creating a community academy and establishing an alpine community economies lab at the train station of Rovereto (IT).
