6:30 pm; Potluck and visiting
7:15 pm; Stephanie Reirick on Madison’s Mutual Aid Network
Mutual Aid Networks are novel networked cooperatives that ‘create means for everyone to discover and succeed in work they want to do, with the support of their community.’
Born from a project of the Dane County TimeBank, and building on the legacy of Madison HOURS local currency and many formal and informal cooperative projects around the world, Mutual Aid Networks connect timebanking, shared resources (like tool libraries, commons gardens, shared laundry facilities, makerspaces, etc), pooled money, and other forms of mutual credit and free exchange to support each other doing the work we want to do — in our professional lives, family lives, communities, and personal lives. And valuing leisure! And education! And care, investment in the future, environmental regeneration, sustainable and accessible building, and on and on. We can use existing tools and new technologies to build a healthier prosperity this way, and it can unleash forces of problem solving and collaboration that we haven’t yet seen.
8:15 pm; Clean-up
8:30 pm; Meeting over.
