(of a region or organization) having the freedom to govern itself or control its own affairs.

"Community Collective is self-propelling, as I like to think of it. Sometimes we'll get artists come in and giving us a demonstration or we'll do our own thing. Last month, one of our group, Hillary, did a stained-glass demonstration for us. Then, we went to the Metropolitan Cathedral to see John Piper's stained glass."
