CCEDNet, MCA, ASU, and CDEM invite all to a free public screening of A Silent Transformation, followed by a panel discusion
Created by Simon Brothers, Luke Mistruzzi, Anton Smolski and Mark Preston, this is a film about the transformative power of the co-operative enterprise model.
The co-operative movement was built by people who took on the responsibility for their collective well being in the face of government neglect, economic exclusion and cultural discrimination. As the modern economy increasingly denies vast sectors of the population basic amenities for decent life, this cooperative spirit is as critical as ever.
However, over the years the co-op sector has become insular and poorly understood. A Silent Transformation sets out to explore the innovative self-help efforts of different communities across the Province of Ontario. By addressing their needs collectively they are helping to regain the radical vision of co-operation. In these communities are the seeds of economic democracy, global solidarity, and a new popular movement to transform society!
Will it grow and flourish?
