Heretical Finance Reading Group
Based in Goldsmith’s Political Economy Research Centre (PERC) and convened by Clea Bourne, the Heretical Finance Reading Group meets monthly to discuss texts providing alternative, cultural and critical perspectives on finance, including fictional representations. Nostromo Joseph Conrad (1904/1984) .Penguin Classics (available as free download) is a tale of capitalism and rebellion, set amid the mist-shrouded mountains of a fictional South American republic, employs flashbacks and glimpses of the future to depict the lure of silver and its effects on humankind.
Free entry. Cafe open.
The Bank is approx 110 metres from Walthamstow Central train and tube station.
The only two road crossings you need to make along the way from station to venue are both proper pedestrial crossings with green man/red man lights and with step-free access from the pavement.
The front doors to the Bank when open at their widest provide a gap of 88cm. There are no steps or other obstacles, There is a gentle slope up from the front door into the main area which is entirely flat.
Unfortunately the venue does not have accessible toilets. Cubicles are small and accessing them requires getting through a doorway gap of 62cm. Toilet seats are 44cm, and sinks are 86cm, above ground.
We do not have central heating and as such the space can be quite cold at times. We will have blankets on hand for any visitor who wants one during their time in the bank.
