The exchange of goods, services, knowledge and ideas doesn’t have to require money. At least, that’s the concept behind the Sporeprint Infoshop, or Spore, a “radical social space” and greenhouse for idealism.
An idea hatched in mid-2007, the Sporeprint Infoshop opened as a community space in the Weinland Park neighborhood in February. Located on the corner of Fifth and Hamlet, next door to the Third Hand Bicycle Co-Op, Spore has a library of books, ‘zines and educational materials, as well as free wireless internet, computers available for use and meeting space where music performances, do-it-yourself workshops, political meetings, cooking classes, potlucks and other community-generated events are held.
