The W. W. Corcoran Visiting Professor of Community Engagement, Caroline Woolard will present the artwork, networks, and events she co-creates to imagine and enact relationships of cooperation and mutual aid. Following the economic crisis of 2007/2008, Woolard co-founded barter and mutual aid networks TradeSchool.coop and OurGoods (2008-2016). Today, Woolard is a founding core organizer of Art.coop (2020-present), which exists to make economic justice a reality in the arts. Join us for an engaging and interactive discussion with an artist who works across disciplines to make systemic change in the sector and beyond.
