Conversation Market

6 July 2013, 11:00–17:00 / Utrecht
Hoog Catharijne Shopping Mall (Godebaldkwartier 57, Utrecht) 

The economy is something we do, not just something that does things to us. We call these “community economies.” Together let’s explore various, alternative “business” models in a marketplace where conversations, not money, are exchanged. Featuring In de Ruimte, De Rooie Rat, Repair Café, het Ruilrestaurant, Stichting Solidair, De Achtertuin and more. Developed with Kritische Studenten Utrecht as part of our long-term collaborative project (Un)usual Business.  

Spatial concept by artist Aimée Zito Lema and designer leRyan. In partnership with Call of the Mall. Followed by launch of a shop, drinks and karaoke at Casco Storefront (Voorstraat 88), 20:00 to midnight.



The activities of Casco are made possible with financial support by Gemeente Utrecht, Stichting DOEN and Mondriaan Fonds. Support is also provided by the European Commission Culture 2007-13 Programme in the context of COHAB, a two-year project initiated by: Casco, Utrecht; The Showroom, London; and Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm.
