The Bluecoat: Economies of Generosity symposium

1 December 12

11 – 17:00

A day of presentations and discussion, the Economies of Generosity
symposium provides an opportunity to explore the role of gift-giving
and generosity in both capitalist and alternative economies, as
thought through themes of education, sponsorship, volunteering, piracy
and theft.
With central government endorsing/enforcing projects such as The Big
Society and Workfare, a parallel force, in the form of the financial
crisis and ‘austerity’, forces communities to think about
alternatives to capitalist transactions.
Economies of Generosity provides an opportunity to talk through some
of the issues at stake.
