The Heather Hart Experience presents, Barter Town (Trading Post XVIII: Repair), a part of Of Gentle Birth, an exhibition curated by Jonathan Allen and generously hosted by Repair the World. Saturday, December 12th from 3pm to 5pm. Everyone is welcomed to this free bartering event!

Whether you want face painting, performance, a film, sporting competition, a raffle, some art, costume making, massage therapy, palm reading, lessons, clothing, a nail salon, vouchers for services, promises, people’s court or anything else, Barter Town is the place to find it and swap for what you have to give! "i have nothing to trade!" oh, ya? no art? poetry? do you know another language? can you teach someone to tie a tie? can you clean a house? can you be a personal trainer? can you make paper airplanes? can you sing custom songs? can you teach a dance move? can you cook a dinner? can you play an instrument? can you give a hug? well then. Dress up "repaired"... claim your space!! Bring your goods, ideas, valuables and creativity and go home with something more!!

Barter Town will have the appearance of an indoor swap meet or carnival, but remember, all “booths” run on bartering only- no currency allowed (no I-owe-yous for money, although drawing an I-owe-you for a service is great) and no cash tips!
