At the Complementary Currencies conference at The Hague last month, we connected with Stephanie Rearick, a Madison, Wisconsin-based activist, community organizer, and musician who's coming to the Bay Area next month, with a matinee performance right across the street from our EBCOHO clubhouse.
So we're putting together a brunch & conversation circles in advance of her 4 PM musical performance Sunday 8/4 at The Starry Plough. We've invited her and SF-based Bay Bucks organizer Chong Kee Tan, who was also at the conference, to share about international and domestic innovations in time-banking, complementary currencies, and other tools that help people and groups collaborate and build their own community economies.
In the spirit of encouraging complementary currencies and thinking diferently about money, we are offering several different ways to pay, including cash donations, work-trade, in-kind hours (including coordinated cooking and outreach and helping EBCOHO organize), Bay Area Community Exchange (BACE) hours, and barter. Note, this is not a free event, as we are investing together to provide a place for Stephanie to stay and in the food and the space, and want to be able to share with her the bounty of the Bay Area.
