Encounters | Trade School

Now in its third year, Trade School celebrates practical wisdom, mutual respect, and the social nature of exchange. A non-traditional learning environment where students barter with teachers, Trade School gives anyone the opportunity to teach a class.  From the philosophy of plumbing, to balloon animals 101, how to write a nonfiction book proposal, and much more, Trade School removes traditional class costs.  Over four consecutive Thursday nights in March, during pay-what-you-wish admission, Trade School will take over multiple spaces throughout the museum giving all visitors the opportunity to learn, teach, and swap knowledge without the exchange of currency.
