Highlighting, Supporting and Connecting
Community Based Sharing Initiatives in Adelaide
Curated by Adelaide urbanist and activist Sharon Ede, Share Adelaide is a hub for South Australians to discover and access local and international activities, ideas, networks and information on community-based sharing.
Share Adelaide is also a catalyst to help citizen innovators and organisations to start or build sharing initiatives by learning what others are doing, and finding likeminded people.
Worldwide, the sharing and solidarity movement is gathering momentum in the wake of converging ecological, social and economic crises. Sharing is a positive, tangible way for citizens to have real agency over their lives and communities, and has a range of potential benefits including building resilient communities, reducing household costs, supporting health and wellbeing, less resource use, and fostering prosperity through relocalisation of economic activity.
Share Adelaide Map
Who is sharing what and where in communities across Adelaide? Do you know something in your community that can be added to the map? Are any of these details incorrect or need updating? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This map will seek to highlight community initiatives which are about sharing, enabling access without ownership, and repair/extending the useful life of physical goods, in particular:
- citizens' initiatives where people are self organising to produce a commons (a resource managed by those who share it)
- ethical enterprises that contribute to a generative rather than an extractive economy
- 'partner state' initiatives by government that support commoners, sharing and ethical enterprises
As this is a map, any additions must have a physical location :)
Please check individual location entries for latest details, opening times/dates and COVID 19 requirements.

mapping community sharing assets in Adelaide and South Australia
ShareNSave was a web platform developed by the South Australian government,
launched in November 2013 to map community based sharing.
It was decommissioned in late 2018.
ShareNSave was made open source in December 2014, which means anyone can now use the ShareNSave software, adapt it and offer their contributions back to the mapping community for others to benefit – for example, if groups develop new icons, or new functions such as a calendar.
