Upcoming Events

Come and meet us in person at one of these fabulous events.

 


 

Bristol Pound User Group 

19:30 - 20:30  |  Wednesday 10 August 2016
The Hub room, Roll for the Soul, Bristol, BS1 2JL

The Bristol Pound is run by the people of Bristol, for the people of Bristol. Having our own currency offers us all the unique opportunity to take control of our money for the benefit of our city. In June, Bristol Pound users came together for the first Bristol Pound User Group: members attended a round table discussion about the successes and the challenges of using the local currency.

The group will now meet every two months, with members of the Bristol Pound team, to feed back on on-the-ground use of the currency, and offer ideas and support, giving the people of Bristol a firm grip on how our money works.

We would like to invite you to the second meeting of the Bristol Pound User Group.

Our User Group is open to everyone and is a way for us to gain better influence from our members. Join us on 10 August from 7:30 – 8:30 to discuss exciting service and software updates and talk about how we can subscribe more of our favourite independent businesses to the scheme.

The Users Group will be a space for collective leverage over our local currency, making the Bristol Pound more responsive to our users. It will also be a great place to network and meet other Bristol Pound users who share an interest in improving our local economy.
Light refreshments will be available and space is limited to 15 attendees. Priority will be given to group members who are already registered but newcomers are encouraged and welcomed.

If you’re an active Bristol Pound user and want to get more involved in the running of our money, please RSVP by email to Ruby at ruby@bristolpound.org. You could also send us agenda suggestions for the group to discuss!

 


 

The Divide

7 - 9pm Thursday 18th August  |  the Wardrobe Theatre

“A fierce, unsettling critique of inequality.” - The Guardian

Join us at the Wardrobe Theatre for a screening of The Divide; an enlightening documentary following 7 individuals striving for a better life in the UK and USA, where the top 0.1% owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%.

Inspired by the critically-acclaimed book The Spirit Level, the film examines global inequality, highlighting the toxic effects on divided communities where both the rich and the poor are struggling to live happy lives. The screening will be followed by a panel lead discussion, including Ciaran Mundy CEO of Bristol Pound and Kat Wall, campaigner for social justice and environmental sustainability. Collectively, we will be discussing positives steps we can take to tackle inequality, strengthen community bonds and prevent social division in these dark political times. We hope you can join us!
