Trade School NYC

I signed up for a bartered class on understanding perfume and having confidence in your opinions at a temporary classroom space in Manhattan. The group that runs Trade School has been presenting events and classes at a variety of city museums and cultural organizations.  Among other things, the group is trying to create “economic practices that reinforce values of mutualism, cooperation, social justice, democracy, and ecological sustainability.”  Unlike the library model, (free and open to anyone) participants must bring something to barter in payment for the class, and different things are requested by each instructor.  I’ll let you know how it goes.
