Robin (they/them) is a multimedia storyteller, solidarity economy nerd, and tender plant tender. Their work involves bringing wealth stewards, artists and grassroots organizers together for culture-shifting and money-moving efforts–especially shifting the culture of how money moves. Their roles include co-organizer with Art.Coop, a steward of Creative Wildfire, and co-director of Cooperative Journal Media. They recently finished facilitating a pilot Reparative Retirement Practice Group about divesting from the stock market and planning a more collectively regenerative future, co-hosted with the Next Egg, Resource Generation’s Solidarity Economy Working Group and CJM.
Their ancestors are from western and northern Europe and they’re learning to collaborate in repair. They are trans, queer, and making home at Canticle Farm on Ohlone Land, Oakland, CA. In this season of study, they are curious about watershed restoration, the history/future of non-extractive finance, composting toilets, and improv (and too many other things–they are very much a Gemini).
