'Economy as Drinks Cabinet' Kathrin Böhm, 2014 'Economy as Drinks Cabinet' Kathrin Böhm, 2014

International artists group Myvillages are the 2014 winners of the Create Art Award for Company: Movements, Deals and Drinks.

Kathrin Böhm will present a lunchtime talk introducing the project’s ambition to establish a sustainable social, and economical, circuit of production. This circuit allows us to understand economy as something that everyone is involved in, and sets an example for how to develop a collective community led enterprise.

As one participant put it during the hop-picking reminiscence sessions: “Going picking wasn’t just about the money, it was about being in good company.

Please note, this is a private event for Bank of America Merrill Lynch as it is held within their office building.
