Acts of commoning can also weave connections between different kinds of commons, a spatially dislocated commons that functions in order to create a mutually supportive web of spaces and activities. This weaving has been described as creating a “circulation of the common”: collectives or associations of people who organise shared resources – including creativity, machinery and other resources into productive ensembles that create more commons and a surplus of resources, which in turn provide the basis for new groups to start nurturing a commons.⁠
