Omni Collective

Overview

A Collective of Collectives in Oakland, California

From Latin omni-, "all, every, the whole, of every kind,"

OMNI Collective is comprised of several Bay Area collectives with a shared political vision—one that, at its most basic level, privileges a more equitable commoning of resources and meeting of human needs over private interests or corporate profit.

To this end, we invite you to join us in establishing a hub: a safe productive place to pool resources for the collective use and stewardship of the greater community. A space that fosters an ethic of radical collaboration across disciplines and between individual collectives, creating a living model for future radical spaces. By collectivizing, we are able to consolidate expenses for the purpose of amplifying one anothers' goals. OMNI is far greater than the sum of its parts.
