Money and Life: A Conversation whose time has come with filmmaker Katie Teague

We want to invite you not only to a very special movie screening of Money and Life, but also to become a part of a new, on-going local conversation about the future of money, exchange, and how we find the means to afford what we most value in life.

In your heart, you sense that we need a radically new conversation about money, don’t you?
