About the Brixton Pound
Established in 2009, the Brixton Pound launches and runs creative, participatory projects that reimagine what urban life can be like. The best known of these, the Brixton Pound currency, is accepted in over 200 businesses and regularly features in national and international media as pioneering the future of local economic transactions. It also runs the Brixton Bonus community lottery scheme, and the Brixton Fund, a grants programme that provides funding to grassroots groups and individuals wanting to create positive change in the area. In 2016 it opened the Brixton Pound Cafe, the first pay-what-you-feel cafe in South London and one which runs entirely on surplus and donated food items, and Brixton Pound Studios, an affordable space for artists to reside and showcase their work.
