Fall Semester Launch

6:00p.m. to 8:00p.m.
Trade School Indianapols
1125 Brookside Ave.
Indianapolis US

Curious what classes we'll be hosting this semester? Want to check out our new community classroom? Come one, come all! Fall marks our annual anniversary, and we'll be celebrating by hosting a First Friday open-house to kick off our Fall semester with our teachers and YOU! Light bites and complimentary beverages from Nameless Catering and Sun King Brewing will be provided, along with plenty of opportunities to meet interesting people and engage with Trade School. If you're a member, you'll be able to register early for any class August 14th before we announce our full class calendar at our launch. On-site class registration will be available and we'll provide some interactive ways for you to give our space some LIFE! There is no cost to this event, but if you're able to offer something from our barter item list below, we sincerely THANK YOU for your help in building our space! If you're agreeing to bring a big ticket item (furniture, appliances - we will reach out to you soon!). We can't wait to see you!

About the teacher, Trade School Indianapolis

Trade School Indianapolis is part of an international collective of alternative, self-organized schools that run on barter. Take a class in exchange for goods or services rather than money! Our mission is to provide non-traditional education focused on mutual aid and respect that makes ideas, skills and resources available to the creative community. We believe that everyone has something to offer, and that paying for services isn't the best way to build community. With mutual respect, anything is possible.
