Our very own BRED member, Bernardo Vigil, will be giving a talk called Democracy in the Workplace: Bernardo Vigil Presents a Case Study On Barcelona Worker Co-ops. This event will take place at Red Emma’s on January 17th, 2019. Bernardo will be talking about his research into workplace democracy in Barcelona, Spain. Bernardo spent time in Barcelona researching how worker co-ops use different strategies to build meaningful pathways toward self-management, participation, and cooperative leadership development.
This event will be hosted by Baltimore Roundtable for Economic Democracy starting at 7pm along with a co-0p happy hour. Attending the co-op happy hour is a great opportunity to have a drink, get to know the team, ask questions about BRED’s loan process, or just chat about ideas and steps to becoming a co-op, all over a drink.

There are some amazing things happening in the world of Baltimore Co-ops this week. Please join these great collectives and help to celebrate these new beginnings
Beyond Video is a wonderful new video rental store in Baltimore that is having their Grand Opening Friday December 14, 2018. Beyond video is a collective that is striving to create a wide-ranging collection of cinema. They are dedicated to securing, preserving, and providing public access to this video collection with the goal of opening a worker-owned rental store that operates on a membership basis.
Baltimore Bicycle Works is having their Grand Opening of their second location on Saturday December 15th, 2018. The success of the past 10 years on Falls Rd has enabled them to open a second cooperatively owned and democratically operated shop in Belvedere Square. It just so happens that it is their 10th anniversary as well, so there is lots to celebrate!
