#TransActing Programme: About

This is a page where we are collecting all the necessary content for the #TransActing: A Market of Values programme / map we will hand out at the market on the 11. July.

Amy and Metod had preliminary met on the 19. 5. 2015 to discuss this handout and came to the conclusion it is best if we create a map-like fold-out containing the basic information about the #TA and stall holders and their basic info about their work. The format of this programme shall be a folded A3 for easier handling.

Below is the collection of the information for this printed document:

#TransActing Programme: Short intro

Critical Practice
#TransActing: A Market of Values
Saturday 11th July 2015, 12–5pm
Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground at Chelsea College of Arts

This bustling pop-up market features artists, designers, civil-society groups, academics, ecologists, activists and others exploring existing structures of evaluation and producing desirable alternatives. Organised by Critical Practice, #TransActing is taking place on the historic Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground and is showcasing -amongst others- a skillshare, a peoples bureau, organ donation, an economy of promises, commoners, a fablab, a bring your own BBQ, virtuous communities, a speakers’ corner—even a kiosk buying tears. Multiple currencies are circulating, not all of them monetary.

#TransActing is taking place in bespoke stalls built by Critical Practice, Public Works and other contributors. These stands are interspersed with spaces of assembly and exchange - a speakers' corner, and a social cinema, it's wealth beyond capital that is traded at this market.
