I’m working on a new community art project– and I hope you’ll decide to participate!
It’s called “The Somerville Stock Exchange,” or SSE for short. Unlike our New York or London cousins, this stock exchange is all about community. It’s a community form, a fund-raiser–and a different take on what a stock market can be.
You can become part of the Exchange by:
2. by making a donation to one of the project’s nonprofit partners (Somerville Homeless Coalition; Somerville Arts Council; Somerville Climate Action), and then letting us know about it. (Email Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org .)
Both options will earn you “Somerville Stock”. Stocks have no cash value, but they’re our way of saying “thanks.” They change “value” based on what is going on around town.
Stockholders will be quarterly updates on what their stocks are “worth,” and the reasons they’ve changed in value.
Hope to hear from you!
