CALL OUT: Do Something, Get Something, Do Something else
Drop-in session: Tuesday 17 May, 15.30 – 18.30
An open invitation to take part in creating an event and accompanying zine – ‘Do Something, Get Something, Do something else’ – co-produced by artist Ian Nesbitt and Primary, alongside members of Nottingham-based timebanking and sharing economy networks.
There are several timebank and skillshare networks in Nottingham. The principle of timebanking is very simple – for every hour that you spend sharing your skills you receive one time credit, which you can swap when you need something. One hour’s work equals one time credit – all skills have equal value.
Ian’s project hopes to address questions of how we might use our shared knowledge better to improve our connection to the places we live, and make the structures of our communities more resilient through shared learning.
The event and accompanying zine will be a platform to make visible and share some of the processes and exchanges that take place as part of the day-to-day functioning of these networks, well as looking at the history of timebanking, and other participatory economies in Nottingham and further afield.
Ian would like to hear from anyone who is already a member of a skillsharing network or who would be interested in taking part in the project. Maybe you could demonstrate a skill that you think no-one else has, share little-known knowledge about the area you live in, do some drawing or writing for the zine, or maybe you are just interested at this stage.
Feel free to drop-in for a cup of tea at Primary and find out a bit more on Tuesday 17 May 15.30 – 18.30
