Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Athens Biennale

Synapse 1 is the first of a series of OMONOIA events or ‘synapses’ running over the next two years. The aim of Synapse 1 is to consider the common ground between groups of scholars, activists, self-managed organisations, cultural producers and other civic subjects involved in urban practices of commoning, solidarity, urban welfare and participatory democracy. Synapse 1 asks participants to imagine how these urban experiments developed in times of crisis may become permanent and sustainable alternatives to the dominant economic and political model. Synapse 1 also asks to imagine the grassroot economic and political practices developed in Greece and Europe’s South as new common ground for an alternative European project.
