Caroline Woolard, "SolidarityNYC, OurGoods.org, and Trade School"

Caroline Woolard speaks about her work with SolidarityNYC, OurGoods and Trade School, two barter economies for cultural production. OurGoods.org connects artists, designers, and craftspeople to trade skills, spaces, and objects to get independent projects done. Trade School, a program of OurGoods.org, is model for barter-based education that has spread from NYC to London, Cologne, Guadalajara, Cardiff, Singapore, Leon, and Milan since it started in 2010.

Woolard is a Brooklyn-based, post-media artist exploring civic engagement and communitarianism. Her work is collaborative and often takes the form of sculptures, websites, and workshops. Woolard is a co-founder of OurGoods.org and Trade School, two barter economies for cultural producers, and a coordinating member of SolidarityNYC, an organization that promotes grassroots economic justice. These projects have been supported by a Rockefeller Cultural Innovation Fund, an Eyebeam Fellowship, EFA Project Space, the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Art and Design, the Queens Museum, Creative Time, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
