CASE invite you to celebrate Co-ops Fortnight (23 June to 7 July 2018) with a screening of ‘A Silent Transformation’ an inspiring documentary about the transformative power of the co-operative model.
The co-operative movement was built by people who took on the responsibility for their collective wellbeing 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 co-operative spirit is as critical as ever today.
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 diverse communities across the Province of Ontario, which by addressing their needs collectively 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?
