What is the Bank of Ideas?
The Bank of Ideas came into being when the UBS headquarters building on Sun Street was taken over and opened as a political occupation.
During its four month occupation the Bank of Ideas hosted over 400 events ranging from political debate and comedy nights to direct action planning and preparation.
The Bank of Ideas now exists as an activist group that creates alternative spaces that strengthen radical social movements.
