#TransActing: A Market of Values
Saturday, 11th July 2015, 12 - 5pm, Chelsea College of Arts

This bustling pop-up market will feature artists, designers, economists, civil-society groups, academics, ecologists, activists and other minds exploring existing structures of evaluation and producing desirable alternatives. Organised by Critical Practice, #TransActing is taking place on the historic Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground and will showcase skillshares, organ donation, expert and enthusiast knowledge, an estate agent, freegan food cafes, and other resources. These diverse forms of value production will animate economies beyond the financial.
