John-Paul Flintoff & Sara Pape Garcia
How to Change the World?
Often we find ourselves stuck in a paradox: we desperately want to do something, but we don't know what it might be. John-Paul Flintoff uses improvisational games, world history and tough questions in an interactive workshop that helps you find your mission − and then get started on it. Following John-Paul Flintoff, listen to Sara Pape Garcia (Time/Bank) about the idea of using time as a unit of exchange.
Who is John-Paul Flintoff?
Who is Sara Pape García?
Sara Pape García (born in Eindhoven) is undertaking a MA artistic research at The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. She co-founded the nomadic artist initiative Palatti after graduating from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2003. She has developed site specific projects in the Netherlands, Turkey, Germany, Spain, Mexico, Luxembourg, China and Kosovo.
Sara Pape Garcia coordinates the Dutch branche of the e-flux Time/Bank, an initiative of Anton Vidokle and Julieta Aranda. Every Time/Bank transaction will allow individuals to request, offer and pay for services in 'Hour Notes'. When a task is performed, the credit hours earned may be saved and used at a later date, given to another person or contributed towards developing larger communal projects. For example, if you happen to be in Beijng or Hamburg and need someone to help you shop for materials or translate a press release, you would be able to draw on resources from Time/Bank without exchanging any money.
