ToO+lkit: Exchanging Art for Medicine, Medicine for Art (or whatever you want!)

with Holly Kelly & Joe Concra of O+ Festival

Started in 2010, O+ exchanges art and music for medicine at its festivals across the country. O+ has proven that if a community values each other equally instead of what is in their wallets, deep trust can be built and artists and musicians can receive the care they deserve. In this workshop we will take you through our process of how we exchange for healthcare and walk you through our ToO+lkit which is an open source guide to creating your own event based upon equal value exchange.

In this workshop, we’ll cover the O+ Exchange model and how it works. You will have the opportunity to learn from us how to start an exchange based event and leave with a Too+lkit to do so in your neighborhood. We invite all to participate.
