CACIM attempts to carry forward the work of building a network among activists and thinkers in different parts of the world and in different fields who are at – or who are moving towards – a stage of critical reflection in their work, and of supporting activists or advisors that most movements around the world have associated with them (those whom Gramsci termed ‘organic intellectuals’), and others involved in the theory and practice of other modes of movement, such as in dance, film, music, and science. We expect these constituencies to be both the primary contributors to such a network and process and also the primary users and interpreters of what it has to offer. As envisaged, the combination of production / contribution, use, and interpretation will lead to the progressive construction of open-ended, multidirectional bridges between participants – and where these bridges will themselves progressively become platforms and networks for critical action, in each of these fields.
