Greece: 2nd Alternative Festival of Solidarity & Cooperative Economy

The 2nd Alternative Festival of Solidaristic & Cooperative Economy will take place in Athens, at the premises of the Cultural Centre of Ellinikon, 11-13 October 2013. The festival is organised totally in a volunteer base with the participation of collectives and networks from the field of barter or cooperative and solidarity economy; the program includes discussions, workshops, concerts, film screenings and exhibitions; a kitchen and a spare bazaar will also take place, which will function with the use of an alternative currency.

In their press release the organisers note: “Not only do we not anticipate the pre-Memorandum era, but instead we have an eye on enhancing self-organisation, self-reliance and true prosperity, regardless of the results of economic indicators”.

x-pressed supports this effort and will be on site transferring, in collaboration with the organisers, the news and the happenings of the festival through the twitter accounts @xpressedorg and @athensfest4sce and the hashtag #athensfest4sce, and also the live video feed as it will be co-produced by OmniaTV and Vmedia.
