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. We want to offer an alternative model that supports economic relationships which contribute towards a culture of deepening solidarity: “give what you can, take what you need”.
In our course descriptions we include rates of suggested contribution. The middle rate reflects the basic real cost required to make the events viable. The project is run by a registered not-for-profit organisation. It depends on numerous forms of generosity and voluntary labour (which is not included in the ‘real cost’ calculation). We don’t have any independent means of financing the events.
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.
Similarly, we appreciate that your financial circumstances might mean you can only give less financially.
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 and they 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.
