Free conference on money, society, and Brixton

Come talk money and community with us on Friday 24th April! We have invited some great, engaging speakers and there will be a delicious locally-sourced lunch for everyone, as well as an opportunity to network and socialise. The conference is open to all and free to attend, but as spaces are limited we highly recommend you REGISTER NOW

Why should you come? If you are in Brixton and use the Brixton Pound, accept it in your business, or are someone who wants to find out more about it and community currencies, this is an opportunity to deepen your knowledge, ask questions, and get more involved.

The Brixton Pound has always been more than just a currency; we know that while it encourages people to buy locally, we also know that it makes Brixton feel ‘special’ and people are very proud of the artwork on the notes so it has a value as community art.

What other values does it have? Does it encourage citizens to participate in their local community or feel that they have a contribution to make? As a means of exchange does it build stronger bonds that make people feel more connected to the area?

These are just some of the questions that will be asked at the conference. Speakers include Nigel Dodd, author of The Social Life of Money, and Brett Scott, author of Hacking the Future of Money, Charlie Waterhouse, the designer of paper B£s, as well as those with community currency experience from France, Holland, Belgium and Wales, Lambeth Council and Brixton Pound.
