"The Community Economies project is a place where new visions of community and economy can be theorized, discussed, represented and enacted. The project grew out of J.K. Gibson-Graham's feminist critique of political economy that focused upon the limiting effects of representing economies as dominantly capitalist. Central to the project is the idea that economies are always diverse and always in the process of becoming. This project developed as a way of documenting the multiple ways in which people are making economies of difference and in the process building new forms of community.

This website includes information on how we are thinking the economy outside of a capitalocentric discourse that situates all non-capitalist activities as ultimately the same as, a complement to, the opposite of, or contained within capitalism."
