It Ain't About the Money: Currency as Resistance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

People of color (POC) have always had economic models that supported and sustained their vision of community. In this session, we will focus on traditional currency models as well as contemporary models of economic resistance used by POC around the world. We will examine a currency developed by the presenters and circulated through ritual and performing arts. We will also design our own currencies. Participants will leave with new tools for engaging and creating local economy that supports cooperative economics, community and relationship.
