YYC Free Market 

Calgary Chapter Organizer: Kevin Jesuino

YYC Free Market is an experiment in giving and moving towards a more creative currency, without the need for money, and the endless making and throwing out of objects.

 

The guidelines are simple:

Give what you can

Take what you need

Leave no trace

Originally conceived as an experiment at the Springboard Performance containR site in Sunnyside, Calgary in August 2016. 2016 saw Calgary fall into a recession and see many people lose their jobs. The globalist world continues to be focused on the process of resource extraction that inevitably ends up being manufactured into something, purchased, used and then thrown away. Occupy Wall Street was also a big inspiration. 

Although it's very much worth noting that  The Free Market in Vancouver, was "born on Friday, December 23rd, 2011 at The Vancouver Art Gallery after the injunction was served against the Vancouver Occupy movements tent city group. some of the remaining participants decided to gather together every second Sunday afternoon and share their wealth celebrating life without money." according to The Free Market facebook page. 

The Calgary chapter has since partnered with SOS Tuesday Open Mic jam bringing live music to the events.
