Basic Income Café: Widening Horizons – Rotterdam (NL) @ Huis der Zotheid
Sep 20 @ 17:00 – 19:00

Widening horizons
by mining the wealth of creative thinkers: to seize the empowering potentials of the digital age with artists as precursors and basic income as the means.

To present and introduce the book and have talk with Vivian Storlund from Finland, we have a pleasure to have Alexander de Roo  (chair of the Dutch Society for Basic Income -Vereniging Basisinkomen) and Bjorn de Leeuw.

The creative sector has to a great extent overtaken industrial production as an economic driver in advanced economies. There is a new world on the internet forming new communities of interest as well as creating a new economy, the platform economy. Notwithstanding, working life continues to be regulated according to the industrial rationale with full-time, long-term employment. A consequence of this is that many persons are deprived of the legal protection labour legislation and collective agreements are intended to provide. This has led to a growing precariat. Those who do not have such ‘standard employment’ can often face Kafka-like situations being disciplined in multiple ways. This is a situation in which artists have long-standing experience.

To cite the Maltese cultural activist Narcy Calamatta: Goldoni died destitute in Paris a day before the revolutionary forces gave him a pension, Caravaggio died destitute on the streets of Porto Ercole, Mozart died burdened with debts, Molière was buried in unconsecrated ground. What can we do to reverse this status?, Calamatta asks.

We need to update our mental software to recognise and remove both theoretical and legal shackles so that we can seize the great opportunities the digital age offers. Artists can act as precursors in this exercise and basic income as a means to ensure that everybody can live a life as an active citizen.

Basic Income March – New York City @ Grand Concourse
Oct 26 @ 13:00 – 16:00
Basic Income March - New York City @ Grand Concourse | New York | United States

New Yorkers are organizing a march for Basic Income. Everyone who can get there is invited to join.

The Basic Income March, led by Basic Income NYC, is set for September 21 october 19, 2019. It might be accompanied by Basic Income Marches in other cities on the same day. The march can receive donations that are 100% tax deductible through its sponsor, the Keith Institute.
This march is one more sign of the rapid growth of the Basic Income movement. It’s especially existing to those of use who where following the movement (such as it was) the 1990s when the presence of a half dozen Basic Income supporters in the same room felt like a novelty. Every year for the past ten years or so the growth of the Basic Income movement has surprised me, and only looking back did I realize that it had been growing in less obvious ways since the mid-80s.
Unfortunately for me, I can’t march. I’ll be out of the country when it happen, but I hope all my fellow Basic Income supporters in New York and maybe the whole USA can participate.
If you’d like to volunteer to help with the event,  Basic Income NYC is having weekly planning meetings–in addition to their regular monthly Basic Income meet-ups. Contact them about getting involved in the planning either of the New York event or of the possible marches in other cities. More information about the Basic Income March is available at www.basicincomemarch.com.
