Amateur Cities and the Institute of Network Cultures are launching the Feminist Finance Zine: Embracing Radical Care. It is a collaborative work focusing on economic alternatives and inclusive financial futuring. The zine aims to inspire local networks of care and democratic infrastructures of money.
Join our Twitter-based Reading Rooms. Each event will be an hour-long live discussion focussing on (1) feminist economics, (2) radical care, and (3) alternative financial infrastructures. We will use topics addressed in the zine as a starting point of an open and engaging discussion on practical examples and possible futures.
To join follow and use #FFZine and the hashtag of the specific Reading Room (#FFZpatriarchy, #FFZcare,#FFZinfra) on Twitter.
See you there!
Reading Room #2: Embracing radical care
Tuesday 12 May, 8PM-9PM CET
Join us by using the hashtags: #FFZcare #FFZine
In conversations with researchers Lana Swartz, Martin Zeillinger, and Denise Thwaites we discussed the consequences of demystifying old and building new techno-economic infrastructures. During the second Reading Room, we will talk about the role of local support initiatives, communities and how to truly account for care work.
Tune in at 8PM to participate in a moderated discussion. We will post our questions throughout the event and are curious to read yours.
