The event creator says
Time As Money: A Documentary Film About Time Banking will be screening at this year's The Village Building Convergence 2015 (VBC), 15th Anniversary City Wide Celebration! Theme: Thrive It Up!

Time As Money is a documentary exploring time banking, a service exchange program that uses time as the currency. Time banking began in the 1980s while civil rights lawyer and former speechwriter for Robert Kennedy, Edgar Cahn, was lying in a hospital bed after a heart attack. This experience of feeling helpless, similar to the disenfranchised and unemployed, gave him the idea to create a new system of money as a tool to connect people and neighbors called time dollars. Time bankers find that not only does this complementary currency bring improvement to their lives, but it empowers them to create larger-scaled time bank projects, giving everyone involved ownership in the community. Time As Money was funded by time dollars. $0 federal dollars were needed in the making of this film.

Director, Lenore Eklund, will open up a discussion after the film about time banking and about the PDX Time Bank. Lenore has taken on the role of PDX Time Bank coordinator since its restart a year ago.
