One of The Field's ERPA recipients, Caroline Woolard, is building OurGoods.org, a cross between Saatchi Online, Etsy, Craigslist, and Kiva. OurGoods.org is an online peer-to-peer network where creative people can trade objects, services, and space with each other. To get the ball rolling Caroline is seeking performers to barter with and for her at an upcoming performance.
www.OurGoods.org SEEKS enthusiastic bartering mutualists for a Public Performance, March 5-8th, 2009. Applicants for the Bartering Mutualist position at OurGoods must demonstrate a history of public performance and a strong commitment to bartering. Please send links to previous projects, dates of availability (February preparation for March 5-8th day performances) and a short Explanation of Interest to email@example.com"
It's a new year. We gotta do things differently.
