We’ll provide you with a scrumptious dinner and feed your mind as well, over two distinct evenings of discussion on the themes ‘soft money’ and ‘hard labour’.
In Soft Money you’ll hear from experts and everyday people involved in black market economies, bartering, share economies, cottage industries or artisanal practice, as well as some who argue for a universal basic income.
Ever done an unpaid gig ‘for exposure’? Cared for your family without pay? Wondered where the boundary of the neoliberal market economy lies? This event is for you!
