Green Thinkers: Swap Market
Join Green Thinkers for our final lunchtime session on Tuesday 7th May, when we will hear from Swap Market – a new exchange space on the Southside of Glasgow. Swap Market operates on a different kind of stock exchange with an in-store “Swaps and Shares index”. Rather than the financial growth charted by the traditional stock market, they chart the growth of sharing in the local area.
Swap Market provides a space for sharing resources, ideas, knowledge and cultures without the need for money. Recent events have included Climate Conversations for young people; a Community Digital Currency workshop; a clothes swap for Fashion Revolution Week; and Migration stories. Join us for a lunchtime conversation to learn more about Swap Market!
All welcome. There will be lunch provided, or you can bring your own along – 12.30pm – 1.30pm in the Meeting Room, Skypark 1.

Skypark 2035: Speculative Visions – A free creative writing workshop
Join artist Johanna Saunderson for a free lunchtime workshop in which we imagine the future of Skypark, as part of the project Strange Weather. Using the architectural model in the foyer as a prompt, this workshop will provide an opportunity to collectively envision how the location, architecture and interiors of Skypark will adapt or be impacted by technological and environmental changes in the future. How does your role at Skypark anticipate and prepare for the future?
The workshop will be an opportunity to meet other tenants, share some lunch, and will be structured with a series of guided discussions and creative writing exercises. No previous experience required! You are welcome to bring your lunch, or there will be some refreshments and food provided.
Please book to reserve a place on the workshop HERE. Arrive at the meeting room in Skypark 1 at 12.30pm on Tuesday 30th April.
Strange Weather runs in the Donated Gallery, and across different spaces at Skypark, between 18th March – 9th May 2019.

They will also talk about how they have set up the society, sparking discussion around important environmental and social issues – from hosting crits, campaigning for institutional design ethics, organising conferences, leading Glasgow’s Eco-shopping trail, equipping new students with toxic-free cleaning kits, and screening films for Fashion Revolution Week.
