Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Parallel Fields: Alternative Economies

Fran Ilich's collaborative Diego de la Vega Coffee Co-op project uses alternative currencies, barter and other methods to work with Zapatista coffee growers and forge connections with politically aligned creatives in New York and elsewhere. In this program, his use of art as a means of supporting an alternative economy will be contrasted with viewpoints from financial journalist and blogger Felix Salmon, who will discuss ways of working within, rather than outside, the current system to promote financial reform and more equitable monetary policy.
