Systems for Sharing
with Sean Roy Parker
In conjunction with ‘Step into Spring’ by Jenna Bliss and Gili Tal, Cell Project Space is working with Sean Roy Parker to lead his project ‘Systems for Sharing’ a skill-swap workshop based around alternative currencies and peer-to-peer learning.
Working with a local community group, Parker will introduce the group to a new set of skills including technical knot tying and British Sign Language phrases. The group will then be asked to exchange the new skill they have learnt with each other. ‘Systems for Sharing’ demonstrates how learnt skills attain value through cultural exchange and how specialist knowledge can be bartered without currency.
