The ‘Alternative Economy Cultures’ (alt.econ.cult)
programme on April 3rd & 5th brings together leading international and Finnish thinkers, cultural practitioners and activists, to present alternative economic visions.

The seminar aims to tackle not just the financial, but the social, cultural, institutional, human, material, emotional and intellectual forms of capital. Not just about individual gain, boosting, balancing or bail-outs, but common good, peer-to-peer, shared wealth and appropriate reward for effort involved.

Bridging the gap between presentations, reflections and things-to-be-done, the discussion-based workshop about peer-fundraising. Can the crowd-sourcing phenomena be applied to support alternative cultural events in Finland?

Friday 3rd April, 10.00 – 18.00


Cultural practitioners, activists, and economic theorists from Finland and abroad, working from different contexts, strategies and institutional backgrounds, have been invited to contribute to this theme.

Michael Albert (US), Michel Bauwens (BE/TH), Geraldine Juárez (MX), Tapani Köppä (FI), Kristoffer Lawson of Scred (FI), Wojtek Mejor (PL), Saija-Riitta Sadeoja of Porkkanamafia (FI), Oliver Ressler (AT), Sara Sajjad of Piratbyrån (SE), Felix Stalder (AT), Tere Vadén (FI), and Eero Yli-Vakkuri of Uuva Project (FI).
