Chain Re: Action
Chain Re: Action is a knowledge exchange day, following a series of crypto-knitting workshops looking at how we can combine feminist thinking and community economies with blockchain technologies.
About Chain Re: Action
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
We’ll be asking: do new digital technologies offer the potential to create fairer grass roots exchange networks?
Throughout the afternoon we will be presenting a range of talks, conversations, workshops and fun interactive artworks; inviting local residents, artists, academics and activists to exchange ideas on how we can use new technologies to create a different type of economy, designed for and by the people who would use it. If a cashless society is inevitable how do we create one that works for us?
The event will feature talks from Swap Market, The Wellbeing Economy Alliance and Ubuntu Women’s Shelter looking at how we put feminist economics into practice in the real world. We’ll have artworks and film from Vishwanath Pasumarthi, Ailie Rutherford, Padmini Ray-Murray and El Cambalache. There’ll also be discussions with people working on cryptocurrencies and using blockchain technology for social good.
