Skills Bank is a project that developed from a three month residency at Functionsuite in the Royal Edinburgh Psychiatric Hospital. The project introduced a way for patients, volunteers and staff at the hospital to share skills and learn from one another on a regular basis without money being part of the equation. Similar in approach to Time Banking and Local Exchange Trading Systems, individuals at the hospital were encouraged to view even the smallest talent into a transferable learning experience. Skills offered as part of the project included keyboard lessons, tattoo skills, football skills, painting and life skills.
