Trade School Cardiff #3 – Roath
A lot of people struggle to think of something they can do that would be of value to someone else. The thing is, we all have something, either a skill, some type of knowledge or experience that other people do not have. Therefore this skill, knowledge or experience has value.
Trade School Cardiff is an alternative ‘school’ where participants can barter for other people’s knowledge. The Trade School movement grew out of New York in 2010 and is based on the belief that everyone has something to offer and that knowledge and learning should be accessible to everyone. The way Trade School works is that people offer to teach a class in exchange for things that they need. People can then attend the class in exchange for whatever the teacher has requested.
The third Trade School Cardiff takes place from the 19th-21st June in the Tavs Centre on Tavistock Street in Roath. Trade School Cardiff #3 is being run in association with Oasis Cardiff and Wales Refugee Council as part of Refugee Week Wales. Many of the classes are being run by Cardiff-based refugees and include topical subjects like Syrian Culture and Language, and Life in Afghanistan, as well as practical skills in cooking, playing music and searching for jobs.
There are still a few slots left if you have a skill or some knowledge or experience you would like to share with others. You can find out more information, register to teach or take part in a class by clicking here.
