Elemental Economics: Happy Hour

  • Private Residence 5503 Northeast Killingsworth Street Portland, OR, 97218 United States (map)

With 8 billion people on the planet and finite resources we simply cannot continue under the auspice of capitalist expansion. What are our other options though? Could it be that secrets to a sustainable economy have been right under our noses and here on Earth this whole time???

This experimental workshop and session for experiential research takes the form of a potluck happy hour. Participants will be asked to bring specific items to share with the group and together we'll create a feast. As you eat you'll enjoy a presentation that explores how microbes, bacteria, fungi and forest ecologies function at their most basic levels. After our bellies are full, we'll draw inspiration from natural networks of exchange to ideate and plan easy and pleasurable means for giving and receiving such as sharing circles and support networks.

Attendance is by pre-registration (PLEASE NOTE: All participants will be asked to bring an item to share.)
