Book Tickets

Join us for a discussion evening bringing together individuals who work as part of three different national co-operatives – an independent cinema, a print house and a local media co-operative.

Throughout the evening you will hear from:

- Ilana from Star and Shadow, a cinema in Newcastle run entirely by volunteers offering a truly independent programme of inspirational and inspired films. 

- Clare from Footprint Workers, a small ecologically minded printers based in Leeds.

- Alec from Bristol Cable who are redefining local journalism through challenging multimedia, community action and cooperative ownership.

It will be a chance to hear about their experiences as well as ask questions of being part of co-op structure: the complexities of it, the practicalities of it, the ethos and the vision.

This talk is part of the project Show Me How, an opportunity for sharing and learning useful skills. Show Me How is an exploration of the possibility of a culture of shared knowledge and resources. The project is initiated by artist Ania Bas.

This talk is FREE to attend but booking is required.
