Open Call For Contributions #TransActing A Market of Values

This bustling pop-up market will feature artists, designers, civil-society groups, academics, ecologists, activists and others who creatively explore existing structures of evaluation and actively produce new ones.

Organised by Critical Practice, #TransActing will take place on the historic Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground, located between Tate Britain and Chelsea College of Arts.Care, trust, creativity and generosity are forms of exchange that coexist with money but cannot be made equivalent to pounds and pence. The Market will showcase skillshares, repair hubs and hacklabs, organ donation, expert and enthusiast knowledge and other resources. Diverse forms of value production will animate economies beyond the financial. It is wealth beyond capital that will be produced at #TransActing.

The Market of Values will be hosted in bespoke structures built by Critical Practice, Public Works and others. These stalls will be interspersed with other spaces of assembly and exchange: a speakers corner, a social cinema, while multiple currencies will circulate, not all of them monetary.

Whilst the values of competitive markets dominate contemporary life, including art and its education, other kinds can and do coexist. Some even flourish in alternative communities of evaluation. #TransActing will nurture and celebrate these value relations in a spectacular one-day event.

12-5pm on Saturday, 11th July 2015 in London, at Chelsea College of Arts on the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground, across from Tate Britain.
