Time Bank / Artist Barter Network
Time Banking is a platform in which EvMC Artists and Community Members keep track of their contributions to the co-operative and allows members to trade their time and skills, goods and services with other members.
There are many ways to trade and create together as a co-operative!
This can look like:
trading use of equipment or recording time
a producer can trade time credits with a singer
a singer can pay for vocal coaching with time credits
a photographer can trade with an artist
a videographer can trade with an actor
a venue can trade with a band
EvMC members are paid from a revenue/investment stream based on work-time equity (current standard rate $20/hour).
For example, a member who works 10 hours helping the co-op could receive $200 in services, or possible dividend payments, as revenue/surplus grows. As the timebank grows, the variety of services will be able to expand beyond arts. Members can trade in other timebanks as well.
When you are approved as a member, you will receive access to our easy-to-use online time banking platform with Hourworld.org. We provide support for creating your profile and getting started with training resources.
