Trade School Toronto is a revolution in learning. Bringing a unique flavour to Toronto’s educational landscape, TSTO breaks down financial barriers by running exclusively on barter, providing useful, accessible information without financial burden.

Challenging traditional notions of expertise as tied to formal education, TSTO opens up the educational floodgates to the many Torontonians who gained their expertise through independent learning and hard work. Celebrating practical wisdom, mutual respect, and the social nature of exchange, TSTO is open to all – anyone can be a TSTO teacher, just as anyone can be a TSTO student.

In its first season, TSTO successfully ran 30 workshops over the course of five days in Fall 2012. Now, it is continuing its mission of promoting access to education via alternative modes of currency by facilitating multiple design-focused workshops throughout TO DO, exchanging practical knowledge for practical items.

Check the TSTO website for more details about specific workshops, and how you can get involved. All workshops are being generously hosted at Graven Feather on Queen Street West near Trinity Bellwoods and The Centre for Social Innovation. | |
