The Village Surrey Transition Initiative presents a free public screening of ‘Money and Life’ on Wednesday, September 18, 2013.

Village Surrey presents: Money & Life

The screening takes place at the Surrey City Centre Library, 10350 University Drive, in the Dr. Ambedkar Room, 4th Floor. Doors open at 6:00pm, screening starts at 6:30pm. The screening will be followed by a community dialogue about a local currency project underway in Surrey.

Money and Life’ is a passionate and inspirational essay-style documentary that that asks a provocative question: can we see the economic crisis not as a disaster, but as a tremendous opportunity? This cinematic odyssey connects the dots on our current economic pains and offers a new story of money based on an emerging paradigm of planetary well-being that understands all of life as profoundly interconnected.

Money and Life’ raises awareness about the role of local currencies in creating more sustainable and equitable economic systems. The movie will be followed by dialogue about a local currency project underway in Surrey. Linda Prai, a Surrey resident, has been researching local currency projects across the country and is exploring options for what might be a good fit for Surrey. Come and hear her ideas and share some of your own!

This event is organized by the Village Surrey Transition Initiative and co-sponsored by Surrey Libraries and the Surrey Urban Farmers Market.
