Hello everyone, a note on what we’re spending for our event, from Edgeryders side.
I was happy to confirm this morning as I was re-checking the numbers that pretty much the entire budget is directly contributing to people’s ability to come, share, enjoy each other’s presence.
NB: The numbers below don’t include the countless hours of work for strategizing, sales, community building and engagement by the edgeryders directors and some close collaborators. A small part of the work is covered through our work in funded projects (i.e. opencare), but the largest is personal investment in collective learning, bridging and linking. Ideally there will come a time when interesting work is compensated consistently, and rewards distributed even more broadly. By this I mean both financially and non-financially, including non-monetary systems for compensated mutual help between projects, or structured skill sharing etc. Many people around here are working on this in promising way, but there is no model that we’ve been applying consistently.
So looking forward to meet!
