ARIAN B - SEX & MONEY (7.45pm approx - arrive any time)
Arian brings an empowering and creative approach to accounting. Their original entrée to accounting was through community finance and local money initiatives, and they reject the monopolistic enclosure of professional knowledge, believing that knowledge and skills around finance and tax should be widely available. Fascinated by similarities in cultural attitudes to both money and sex, they’re passionate about applying sex-positive technologies to our relationship with money. They aim to harness their race, class and gender privileges for benefit of the queer and conscious sex communities in which they live and work.
Sex and money have many similar resonances in Western culture, so what might we be able to bring from conscious sex community and intimacy work to help us open up new spaces in our relationship with money? This talk offers a different context for framing our relationship with money and then covers two areas: Familiarity with processing shame assists us to reduce the emotional load we place on money and hence clear the way for a more pragmatic approach. And adeptness with personal boundaries can help us negotiate more intricate financial collaborations with greater confidence.
SUMMER HOUSE WEEKEND - Q & A (8.45pm approx - arrive any time)
Summer House Weekend takes places from the 17th through the 21st of August 2017. At this Q & A session with Tobias and some of the team you will have the opportunity to offer constructive feedback and ask the questions you have always wanted answered.
The weekend programme is packed with workshops, performances and time to do whatever your heart pleases. For some guests it takes a bit of time and distance after the weekend to process and reflect on their time at Summer House Weekend. We offered this session for the first time last year, and it proved a great way for guests to re-connect and share. Equally importantly it gives the SHW team a chance to hear directly from you, the community we serve!
Tickets are £5 in advance (£3 concessions) or £10 on the door.
