Wotz New: Conference 2005: Progressing the Social Economy through Art/ 
Media/ Design...and vice versa.

Social Economy through Art/ Media/ Design

This year the focus of the conference will be on co-op/community 
groups in South East London and "media-centric" groups from around 
London, looking at taking the social economy to the next level of 
networking, communication and visibility. Speakers will be coming from 
various groups, including SELEDA, the Hub, Deptford Arts Network and 
Sanford Housing Co-op, attempting to demonstrate how the social 
economy can support the arts and how art/ media can progress the 
social economy. There will be workshops running at the same time, 
which will show those interested, how to set up their own projects, 
looking at incorporation, financing and pitfalls. 

VENUE: Open Arts Platform, The Old Seager Distillery, Brookmill Road, 
Deptford, London, SE8 4JT.

So Wotz Alternative Housing?

Alternative Housing is looking at applying these ideas to one of our 
basic needs, shelter. Housing which centres around the dynamic 
principles of self-help, independence and social change. Examples vary 
but include co-ops, squats and co-housing. Alternative housing is the 
vision of sustainable, grassroot communities free from landlords, 
interference and powerlessness; and dynamic enough to be involved in 
promoting wider social change.
