Cooperative Economic Exchange: Game Day

Sunday is Game Day!

On Sunday, April 28th The Brooklyn Torch and TimeBanksNYC had an afternoon of play exploring cooperative exchange at NURTUREart Gallery. David Morgan, a co-creator of new board game ‘Co-opoly’ made by Toolbox for Education and Social Action (TESA) was there to support gameplay.

In Co-opoly: The Game of Cooperatives, players collaborate to found and run a democratic business. This is an exciting game of skill and solidarity, where everyone wins – or everybody loses.

Jessie Reilly of  TimeBanksNYC also facilitated a variety collaborative games, including a new twist on surrealist drawing and storytelling exercises which explore themes raised by participant’s relationships to time and money. As part of the Brooklyn Torch Economic Kindling Package, everyone who joined and completed a game with gallery visitors and neighbors, was rewarded for their play-training session in Brooklyn Torches, North Brooklyn’s local currency. Brooklyn Torches are good for a wide range of local services and goods on our registry and in our Trade Stores.
