10am: John Eder
Time Banking

Time Banking is a means of exchange where your time spent helping your neighbors and building a strong community is turned into a cashless currency.
Itís an indirect bartering system as opposed to direct bartering between people which requires a coincidence of wants. A Time Bank uses units of time as currency. Everyoneís time and talent is considered equal - your time is exactly equivelent to another's. Softwear is used to track transactions within an online directory.
We'll talk about Time Banking as an alternative currency that is sustainable, inclusive and supports strong, autonomous community as well as discussing tools and next steps for actually organising a Time Bank for Cork.

12pm: Mick Byrne
Autonomy and the financial system

From the forty-hour week to state pensions, people have always sought to liberate their time and creativity from capital. Today, however, when the financial system forms such a central part of capitalism, it can feel like there is no way to escape the private and national debt that is central to financial capitalism. This talk will ask what autonomy means in this new context and what the implications are for social movements.

2pm: Patrick Bresnihan
Counter-culture and counter-power in the 18th century

In the latter half of the eighteenth century, secret agrarian organisations surfaced in different parts of Ireland. Their grievances included the enclosure of common lands, inflated rent and the payment of tithes to the established church.
These popular movements are not easily understood within the familiar historical frameworks of nationalism or religion. At the same time they are often considered 'cultural' or 'social' because their struggles were not framed in a 'political' discourse. While their localism has obvious weaknesses these autonomous movements effectively undermined the power of the state. They challenged the unjust effects of the governing logic by appealing to and living by a different logic rooted in alternative practices and understandings of the common good.

3.30pm: Amber O'Sullivan & St.John O'Donnabhain
Get Collectively Organising and Avoid Burnout!

A short introductory workshop about building a personally and collectively more sustainable resistance. It will be geared towards those interested in effecting social change, particularly those involved with political or community work - but all who are interested are welcome to come along.
We want to move beyond the idea that collective work and work on the self are separate areas and instead move towards an integrated approach. During the workshop we will aim to introduce various techniques, tools and ideas for dealing with group or individual burnout within community or political organising.
