As part of the 2017 San Francisco International Arts Festival, the organizers invite men, women and gender fluid people to participate in FEMICOIN an experimental design and performance workshop. This workshop will imagine and explore the circulation of a speculative feminist currency that unlocks creative capital and facilitates economic gender equality in the Bay Area. The workshop will be led by a diverse team, including experts in the fields of design, theatre, economics and gender theory. This is a 3-hour drop in event, open to a maximum of 30 participants. A nominal "fee" of $5 will buy a number of Femicoins to participate in the workshop activities.
