The People's Bank of Govanhill evolved from a residency at Govanhill Baths in 2015
From beginning as a series of ad-hoc exchanges and experiments in feminist economics, The People's Bank of Govanhill now collectively run,
has grown into a long term collaborative project mapping the local economy and expanding ideas of community currency to re-define value, worth and distribution.

Our new exchange space, Swap Market opened in 2018 providing a space for swapping and sharing resources without the need for money,
exploring at how we can put feminist economics into practice
