Oikonomia Network introductory video & one-minute trailer:
This short video, shot in the unique environment of the Grohmann Museum, offers the perfect introduction to our network. Share this video with your peers and anyone else who’s interested in what you’re up to! We have also put together a one-minute trailer version to whet people’s appetites for the full video.
