The double meaning of the word "company" - being an enterprise and being in good company - has shaped Company Drinks from the start. We want to TAKE BACK THE ECONOMY by making it work for people and the planet. Company Drinks runs two programmes to put these ideas into practice:
SHARING SPACE, SPENDING MONEY with the Company Drinks Keyholders, a group of artists, gardeners, volunteers, creatives, makers and organisers who run their own community activities at our pavilion and garden. We talk about what people are up to, find ways of working together; including how to spend money. Run by Cam Jarvis.
The CENTRE FOR PLAUSIBLE ECONOMIES
Economy is a strange beast. Everybody is exposed to economic forces, but nobody seems to be in control. Responding to this frustration with upbeat pragmatism, the Centre for Plausible Economies brings together artistic action and critical thinking to reclaim the economy. It is as a new platform for mapping and reimagining economic systems, in the arts and beyond. Initiated by Kathrin Böhm and Kuba Szreder in 2018.
