Trade School

Barking Park

Together with Barking Technical Skills Academy


What is a good deal? How to pay without money? What's the value of things? A three part session exploring economic models such as swap shops and time banks, finishing with a Cash Free Drinks Stall in central Barking.

We are piloting a Company Drinks Trade School with students from Barking Technical Skills Academy, looking at alternative and non-monetary models of trade and the value production behind everyday products.

The sessions are hands-on and negotiating, explaining and making deals without using money will be part of the experience. On the last day we’ll be experimenting with different ways of selling goods in public, a vending machine, a flying trader and a classic market stall.
