Discussion – New Art Call: Economic Relocalization
[Recorded on Tuesday, April 4, 2023]
Deep Transformation Network – Artists and Creatives Group

Hosted by Michele Guieu and Christina Conklin

Link to the event here.

Join us to discuss much-needed Economic Relocalization –and share ideas about how to visualize it– based on the Think Resilience course by Richard Heinberg, Post Carbon Institute. The Artists and Creatives group follows the What’s Next for Earth art project journey through thought-provoking discussions around themes related to the poly-crisis and how to prepare a just future on a habitable Earth. Visit whatsnextforearth.com to learn more.
Our current art call is Economic Relocalization.

“Local economic development benefits everyone—except maybe big multinational corporations. A more local and therefore more resilient economy is one in which people feel they have more of a stake in production and distribution as well as consumption; one in which they have more knowledge of where their goods come from and what happens to them at the end of their lifecycle. Finally, nothing fundamentally new has to be invented for this to happen: local economies have deep and ancient roots, and there are already efforts underway in hundreds of towns and cities around the country to support local enterprise.”
Richard Heinberg, Think Resilience course, Economic Relocalization lesson.
