Imagine you could find much of what you need, all from people you trust, in just 2 hrs while sitting at home! Yes, an online human with human exchange.
All of us have an amazing palette of gifts. Most of us don’t see our value. When we tap into our wealth of offers & recognise that we can fulfil up to 80% of each others’ local community needs, we embark on a shared journey. We reshape ourselves & our relationships, our economy, the very way we do life.
Could we really see the challenge of these uncertain times, as an opportunity to build the Blue Mountains’ community’s resilience?
Please note: This is a “Pay What You Want or Can” event. Any payments made go directly to the workshop facilitator – juli.
Tell me more!
The Offers and Needs Market (OANM)* is a guided process where community members come together to identify & exchange their passions, knowledge, skills, resources & needs Whether for free, barter, or a set rate: each person controls the terms of exchange- not a system. Through OANM, communities have uncovered what they thought was impossible. Participants have found employment and places to live, started new businesses, located items of need, and initiated significant friendships. The process is a proven way to boost self-esteem and trust within communities, while dramatically increasing the local sourcing of goods & services.
We all have amazing things to offer. When we share what we have to offer, life becomes simpler, more enjoyable and more meaningful.
Juli is thrilled to be joined by Leanne Stevenson as tech wizard extraordinaire for our market. Leanne has experience with Ancient-Modern Marketplaces and is a passionate and attentive facilitator/ teacher.
As regards contribution, we ask that you consider your position in the moneyed economy. There are many right now who do not have funds and we hope to be able to include everyone. So if you are one who is or was (now retired and comfortable) in the moneyed world, kindly make a financial contribution so that collectively, we can ensure that all are always able to CHOOSE to participate in a mutual aid marketplace.
All are welcome. No previous experience necessary.
You must register to attend! please RSVP here.
*Thanks to the Post Growth Institute for the foundations they paved with their original OANM structure.
