As Ian Nesbitt’s ‘Ek-uh-nom-iks’ project develops, he’s inviting people to join him for a one-to-one conversation about their interests in skill-sharing and alternative economies – and what their input might be to the project as it progresses towards an event and publication in November.
Contact Ian at ku.oc1493507442.ttib1493507442senna1493507442i@ofn1493507442i1493507442 to book a 20 minute slot.
There will be tea and biscuits available if anyone wants to spend longer with us and chat to others involved in the project.
‘Ek-uh-nom-iks’ offers the opportunity to take part in creating an event and accompanying zine – co-produced by artist Ian Nesbitt alongside members of Nottingham-based ‘alternative economy’ networks. There are several examples of these, such as 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 resistant through shared learning.
The event and accompanying zine will be a loose 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, have a unique experience to share, are interested in doing some drawing or writing for the zine, or maybe you are just interested at this stage.
