All our events are offered in the spirit of solidarity and we’re committed to challenging economic marginalisation and exclusion. Consumerism and capitalism strongly condition our relationship to each other and the world. Reduced to producers or consumers, we’re insulated from more responsive engagement with each other. Our relationships become mediated by way of financial exchange and contracts. We want to enter into a wholehearted relationship as co-producers and collaborators in the transformation of ourselves and our world.
We believe that the practice of mutual generosity constitutes a basic ethos at the heart of life affirming community. Sharing is a basic form of solidarity.
In our course descriptions we include 4 rates of suggested contribution. We have offered Support us, VIP, standard and discounted. The project is run by a registered not-for-profit organisation. It depends on numerous forms of generosity and voluntary labour. If you can offer more than the middle rate we suggest, then please do. This will help to support the on-going development of the work and enable others who are more economically marginalised to gain access to the work.
When participation is supported by specific fundraising and grants we then make specific contractual arrangements with organisations so that grant funding can be channelled towards fulfilling our aims to offer the work as widely as possible.
Either way, please look at the suggested contributions and enter into the spirit of the solidarity economy by giving what you can, so that we can support you and others to take what you need. We are also open to discussing donations in the form of skill sharing and other offers of work to support the project. We look forwards to meeting you in the spirit of mutual generosity.
