Built with Indexhibit

The People's Bank of Govanhill grew out of my residency at Govanhill Baths in 2015
What began as a series of currency experiments and exchanges has grown into a long term collaborative project,
mapping the local economy and expanding ideas of community currency to re-define our ideas of value, worth and distribution.
In 2017 the People’s Bank of Govanhill became a constituted community group,
run collectively by a committee with a growing membership of local residents and interested citizens.

Our new exchange space, Swap Market opened in 2018 providing a space for swapping and sharing resources without the need for money.
