The world renown, Amsterdam-based speaker and actress, Dette Glashouwer
has been selected to be the keynote presenter at IRTA's 35th Annual International
Convention in Cancun, Mexico from September 25th through 27th, 2014
at the Grand Oasis Resort & Spa.
At the time the financial crisis broke out, Dette Glashouwer had to
close her theatre company. She became very interested in the topic of
money and decided to make it the central theme of her next series
of performances. After a successful first tour in the Netherlands, she
traveled to America, Norway, Istanbul where she performed in theaters,
festivals, people's homes, at banks and Timebanks. She spoke with scientists,
visionaries, philosophers and out-of- the-box-thinkers to get an answer
on her question: "what is money", how does the current money system
effect our planet and how do barter and complementary currency systems
help, and are there other new creative sustainable options available?
This led to a second and even a third play on the topic of money.
Dette Glashouwer's entertaining and informative crash course presentation
on the history of money, debt, stocks, barter and complementary currency
systems won the 2011 Mediamatic Award for Best Idea.
