In this panel discussion and workshop, we will learn from activists, educators, and practitioners dedicated to transforming communities through new models of economics, as they guide us through an exploration of new, old, and liberated ways to relate to money. We will ground into ancestral Jewish understandings of economics as they relate to agriculture and communal interdependency, and from there explore community economic models as they exist today. We will glimpse and learn about networks of informality, cooperation, and community-oriented finance that are growing and thriving in Philly, and how we can connect into them.
We will be joined by Jamila Medley, Director of the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (PACA), and Jena Harris, organizer of FoodEveryoneDeserves (FED). The panel will be moderated by activist extraordinaire and founder of Fikira Bakery, Al Pascal.
After the workshop, we'll have an open networking/myceliating/shmoozing/relationship-building time with snacks made by Jena and Al in their FED-Fikira collaboration!
