Weave to Empower - Women's Off-Grid Co-op

in sustainability •  9 months ago  (edited)

Hello!

I just discovered @homesteaderscoop.

This is amazing! I have tears of joy because I was dreaming of it. I was hoping to meet people with the same vision: using the blockchain technology to build an alternative system of production/distribution for artists.

I have been working for more than 10 years in diverse autonomous/alternative art projects. I don't have any clear answer if art can participate in social change. But I keep questionning, believing (and being desperate), imagining, making actions. I want to contribute to generate a sustainable and fair system for artists, that's my way to imagine escape out of precarity.

I am a Berlin-based, and am planning to launch a responsible fashion brand next year, focused on creating positive social and ecological impact...

I would like to get to know your project, study what you propose. I will read information on your website and blog.

Thank you for your work!

Warm wishes from Berlin

Hi @enbyx! Thank you for taking the time to make this nice comment! I can see that you recognize the value in what we are trying to do for sustainable and ethical individuals :)

Yes, I know the answer to your question is yes! Art can participate in social change. It is an essential part of humanity.

While our homesteaders co-op is not centered in art, art is definitely a component. However I have been thinking and can't escape the fact that there is opportunity for a sustainable, ethical artists co-op. I am keeping my eye out for the right individuals that may want to lead such a co-op. You seem busy with your fashion brand but if that is something you want to be a part of building please feel free to message me on discord :)

Your optimism is contagious :D

Yes I was talking from a specific position, with an art focus. But as you say, there is a direct link between the different approaches (homesteaders, artists, makers and activists).

I would be seriously interested in this project (building an alternative cooperative art market place). It's true that I have other 2019 priorities, but I am ready to be part of! I am new here, so I need to learn a lot of things: I am not yet on Discord.

Meanwhile I will read your posts with great pleasure.

:) I am glad.. I love contagious optimism too! Yes if you are very interested in being part of it, please sign up to discord and send me a message... or let me know and I will find you there :) You can find discord in your mobile app store or if you want to use it on your computer https://discordapp.com/ Many steem communities create have their own chat group in discord, its handy to have if you feel like interacting with any steem communities in a group chat setting, or also privately with direct messaging
