The economy is something we do, not just something that does things to us. We call these "community economies". Together let’s explore various alternative “business” models in a marketplace where conversations, not money, are exchanged. Featuring In de Ruimte, De Rooie Rat, Repair Café, het Ruilrestaurant, Stichting Solidair, De Achtertuin and more. Developed with Kritische Studenten Utrecht as part of our long-term collaborative project (Un)usual Business.
