Transition Town Bayswater Movie Night

“One Big Home” – Transition Town Bayswater Movie Night

October 26, 2018 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
City of Bayswater Civic Centre, 61 Broun Ave, Morley WA 6943, Australia

Transition Town Bayswater and Environment House bring you this insightful new documentary and the Director will chat to us from the US about his movie after the screening. Don’t miss this one!

How do you ask the hard questions in your community? Carpenter Thomas Bena’s experience is that you do it out of caring and not out of anger.

Join us in the Embleton Room at the City of Bayswater Council Building for Transition Town Bayswater’s fourth movie night. One Big Home is a new documentary by a Carpenter who decided to ask a hard question about why people want bigger (houses) when it might not be better. This documentary explores the role our landscape plays in defining our sense of place and how failing to conserve natural places changes this sense of place. The process of answering this question led to a campaign that achieved a change in planning regulations in his community. Although this documentary is set in Martha’s Vineyard, it resonates with the changes in our community as we face issues such as the preservation of our few remaining natural wetlands from development and how we can conserve significant trees on public and private land and better understand them as a joint community asset.

Thomas Bena (One Big Home Director) has asked to join us for a Q&A after the movie – skyped in from the US.

Free entry.

“Food Coop” – Transition Town Guildford Movie Night

October 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Stirling Arms Hotel, 117 James St, Guildford, WA

FOOD COOP takes us deep into the belly of the Park Slope Food Coop, one of America’s oldest cooperative food supermarkets, with a healthy dose of insight and wit.

Nestled deep in New York City, which, for many, exemplifies both the glory and the horrors of the capitalist spirit, you can find this highly prosperous institution, just as American and certainly more efficient than Wall Street, but whose objective is entirely non-profit. Working against everything that defines “The American Way of Life,” the basic principles of the Park Slope Food Coop are simple: each of its 16,000 members work 2.75 hours per month to earn the right to buy the best food in New York at incredibly low prices. This Brooklyn coop founded in 1973 is probably the best implemented socialist experience in the United States.

Through FOOD COOP, you will see this institution come to life and witness how the enthusiasm that animates the Park Slope Food Coop demonstrates a potential for change; how the coop’s mode of participation viscerally teaches democracy to those who take part in its activities.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite to help the kitchen know how many to expect.

Join us for food and drinks from 6pm onwards, Movie starts at 7pm

Entry by donation.
