Eastbourne will get its own local community currency. The BourneCoin notes and the BourneCoin app need designing. The spreading of the BourneCoin as a currency that gains social acceptibility, and finds new use-cases, needs visual and conceptual art as well as contributions from creatives in the design and digital tech fields. This workshop at Towner Art Gallery is the briefing for all artists and creatives who want to be part of this fascinating process. Around two months after this workshop the people of Eastbourne are invited to an exhibition, where they can discuss the result. Defining the details of how we get to the final design of our money is also part of the workshop. In case of questions please contact us: [email protected] The number of places is limited.

Only people registered in the 'Events' section of have a secure place.

Design might be seen as what something looks like. But it might also be seen as how something works. Therefore this invitation also includes all creative people who might work as app designers, software designers or system designers. We only wanted to mention this, if there was any doubt about it. :-)
"Money is a social design that then designs the social. Therefore if we work in currency innovation we need to think about what kinds of behaviours we want to support and then design mechanisms for that into the currency system" Think. Discuss. Innovate.
Interested but can’t make a weekday afternoon
