    Trade School LA is an alternative, self-organized school that runs on barter. The Los Angeles chapter was started in 2014 and hosted its first month-long session of classes in May. Instead of paying cash for the courses, students attending Trade School LA sessions barter for admission with items such as a nonfiction book, a set of guitar strings, a donation to charity in lieu of trade, a homemade cupcake, help hanging artwork, etc. Green Galactic’s Marketing, Promotion & PR Basics for Emerging Cultural Creatives course will be held at Gal Palace, a DIY event space in Rampart Village in Los Angeles (131 S. Rampart Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90057).

    “In a nutshell, this class is about messaging: figuring out who your audience is, learning how to communicate with them, and using the right tools,” says Green Galactic Founder and Publicist Lynn Tejada, “By the end of the class, students will have a game plan to help them move forward on their path.”

    Trade School LA –
    Operating under the belief that everyone has something to offer, Trade School is an alternative, volunteer-operated school that runs on barter. It’s a place to learn with other people who value practical wisdom, mutual aid, and the social nature of exchange. The Los Angeles chapter was started in 2014 and hosted its first month-long session of classes in May. Classes at Trade School LA are taught in exchange for barter items provided by students, with each instructor setting their own class’s exchange. Students sign up for classes on the Trade School website, and, by signing up, they agree to bring one of the barter items requested by the instructor. On the day of class, the teachers and students meet in a space that is made available by Trade School LA. Students give their barter item to the teacher and the class begins.

    “We’re thrilled to launch Green Galactic’s first ever marketing class for emerging artists at Trade School LA,” says Green Galactic Marketing Consultant Charlene Boehne, “There are so many things that we love about this innovative new school. Since the classes are barter-based, pretty much anyone in LA has access, plus, the project is an amazing catalyst for community building.”
