Andrew Wilson

I experiment with structures to facilitate collaboration between people with different kinds of knowledge, and I have been one of the co-founders and main organisers of para-lab (2017-) and Superposition (2013-2017), both collectives of artists and scientists; The Making Space, a cooperatively run shared workspace (2013-); Same Skies (2015-) the citizen-led regional democracy network and think tank for West Yorkshire; and two co-operatives to develop software. In the decade from 2000 I developed platforms for creative and socially valuable uses of mobile technology, with a focus on collaborative participation and tools for grassroots coordination. In 2019 I was the founding director when Same Skies became a think tank, and am currently co-director. I work part-time as a support worker for people with learning disabilities.
