A space to socialize, interact, and explore how we spend or share our time.
During the Time Salon, we uncover the history of time exchange, bartering and early human economies, relate this to a modern resurgence of timebanking, weave timebanking into the development of mutual aid spaces, and begin to tangibly “feel” how strong our safety net becomes when we connect the individual threads.
What is timebanking? What are the historical roots of time exchange? How can timebanking be used as a tool to strengthen social fabric in communities? How is timebanking related to other cooperative and collaborative economic practices?
The Time Salon is a facilitated gathering offered by the Kola Nut Collaborative which guides participants through dialogue and practice in communal asset mapping, social economy and non-monetary exchange. In this intentional space, we challenge the idea that economic participation is restricted to those who possess dollars and cents.
