“Nowtopia is a book about a new politics of work. It profiles tinkerers, inventors, and improvisational spirits who bring an artistic approach to important tasks that are ignored or undervalued by market society. Rooted in practices that have been emerging over the past few decades, Nowtopia’s exploration of work locates an important thread of self-emancipatory class politics beyond the traditional arena of wage-labor”

Saturday 4th April – 10am walk and talk at Royate Hill Community Allotment followed by 11am Breakfast at Kebele Social Centre followed by A visit to Eastside Roots at 12.30pm.
