S5 E05 The Castlemaine Currency Project

Listen here – or find and follow Saltgrass on your podcast app.

Local currencies and alternative money systems… what is that all about? Is it really a helpful thing to be thinking about in the middle of the climate crisis?

Dale Cox, Jodi Newcomb and Ann Ferguson are a group of artists in Castlemaine who have created an art project and social experiment in the form of a local currency they called The Silver Wattle to explore just these questions.

The audio in this episode was recorded at a live event that was held as part of the Castlemaine fringe arts festival – one year after the Castlemaine Currency Project was launched back in May 2022
