Make It Rain: alternative economics and currency in Tallinn culture
presentation : discussions : panel : open seminar
03 мая 2012, 00:00 20:00

Where does the conceptual economy of art and culture separate from the actual? Can the cultural sphere of Tallinn create a currency to challenge, compete and/or comment on the Euro? Can local currencies empower creativity? How can a system emerge to benefit Tallinn culture without burying us in overhead?

Make it Rain is an evening to explore the possibilities of a local, alternative currency. We begin with presentations by artists and activists who have attempted such projects in the past. Following the presentations will be a look at existing alternative currency projects in the art world. We conclude with an open seminar to look at practicalities and possibilities of such a system being implemented in Tallinn.

Presentations: Christian Nold (London, UK) and his Bijlmer Euro project (presenting over Skype); Totaldobze (Riga, Latvia) and their Dobziki currency; Rainer Eidemiller from the P.A.I. Bank in Paide. Panel will include Raoul Kurvitz (EKA/Polymer), Henri Laupmaa (Uus Maailm), John W. Fail (Ptarmigan) and others.
