Trade School

Caroline Woolard, co-founder of NYC's Trade School and panelist at Left Forum (see below), suggested we present a workshop on the ideas in Life Without Money, engaging with participants and collecting information through a survey on sharing practices. 'A Life Without Money?' is set to take place on both Saturday 14 April at 3 pm to 4.30 pm at the GeneralAssembly at 902 Broadway (4th Floor) and on Sunday 15 April at 4 pm to 5.30 pm at the GrandOpening at 139 Norfolk Street, New York City.

Here is the description, that you'll find, with more details and a way to sign up on the Trade School calendar:
Experiences as a writer and filmmaker, experiments with alternative living and work arrangements and exchange systems, and teaching sustainability and social sciences, led me to initiate and edit a recently published book with ten contributors — Life Without Money: Building Fair and Sustainable Economies. In this workshop I'll outline some key themes in the book, which argues that social and environmental values are much easier to respect in systems of mutual aid where money plays no part. The book also presents some practical and strategic examples for constructing a world without money. This workshop will explore these ideas in a collaborative way. When you sign up let us know if there are questions or topics of particular interest to you so we can make sure they are covered. There will be plenty of space for interaction in the workshop, which will mainly involve discussion. You will be asked to fill out a survey focusing on your sharing practices, which will be your 'payment' for attending.
