If you're in Amsterdam, Netherlands on March 21-22, you might be interested in the following event. For those who
cannot attend, the full conference will be recorded and uploaded online.

MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives
Sprouting New Economic Forms in Times of Crisis
International Conference & Alternatives Bazaar

MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives is a two-day international conference on alternative economic forms, currencies and banking systems organized by the Institute of Network Cultures on 21-22 March 2014 at Lab 111 (Arie Biemondstraat 111) in Amsterdam.

The conference brings together top international speakers – researchers, activists, artists, designers and programmers – to critically probe alternative economic models, payment systems, revenue models and local and digital currencies against the backdrop of the ongoing global economic stagnation.

Topics: Bitcoin | Crowdfunding | Mobile Money | Digital Currencies | Local Currencies | Economic Crisis & Activism | Money and Art | Alternative Banking Systems |

Speakers: Saskia Sassen, Bill Maurer, Franco Berardi, Tiziana Terranova, Eduard de Jong, Aaron Koenig, Brian Holmes, Matthew Slater, Lana Swartz and many more.

What is the future of internet-based currencies like Bitcoin? Can revenue models such as crowdfunding function as structural sources of income? What lessons are to be learned from mobile money payment systems in Africa? Is it possible to imagine a future sustainable network-economy? How should we understand the politics and governance of alternative digital-economic forms?

The MoneyLab Alternatives Bazaar complements the conference. The Bazaar presents organizations and initiatives directly involved with alternative revenue models and local currencies such as Qoin, Noppes, Next Nature & Eco Currency, Timebank CC, Peerby, and a Bitcoin ATM. The Alternatives Bazaar provides a platform to network, exchange ideas, and get involved and is open throughout the 22nd of March. Further activities at the event include art performances and workshops.

More information, tickets and updates on the program:
Tickets are € 30,- (regular) and € 15,- (student discount) per day.

MoneyLab: Coining Alternatives is an initiative of the Institute of Network Cultures and Hogeschool van Amsterdam in collaboration with CREATE-IT and Amsterdam Creative Industries - Centre of Expertise, and the University of Warwick.

Hope to see you there!
