How?

The means through which this action or product is achieved.

Appropriation
This can include the taking of another's property for one's own purposes (either legally or illegally, short-term or long-term), or through highlighting abandoned or unoccupied space.

Dissemination
This is about the way knowledge is distributed, how it is spread and to whom, as well as the opening up of discussions for a wider debate.

Empowerment
Allowing others to 'take control' over their environment, being participative without being opportunistic; something that is pro-active instead of re-active.

Networking
This can be a way of working where a core group of people expands according to each project and the expertise it requires, or a core group that builds its projects around its networks; these are hardly ever static groups and they are highly interdisciplinary and collaborative in nature.

Subversion
A tactic / strategy that uses existing policies, guidelines, buildings, etc. for purposes other than those they were designed for.
