As part of the Antioch College arts course, “Art and money,” Antioch College students and Charles Fairbanks, assistant professor of media arts, have opened a community-wide Time Exchange.

The Time Exchange seeks to provide a resource by which community members trade their time and talents for the time and talents of their fellow villagers. The Time Exchange will operate through an interactive website, where users can log their hours, state their skills and time they are willing to share.

On Friday, new members who signed up got a coupon for 30 minutes of time they could “spend” on different things at the event: haircuts, massages, juggling lessons, portraits & caricatures, baked goods, origami, and more.

So far 75 people signed up, and many hours have already been exchanged. To sign up, visit http://www.hourworld.org/bank/?hw=1528.

For more information, contact Lillian Burke, class of 2016, at LBurke@antiochcollege.org.
