Barter Trade Makes a Comeback


Put cash and credit card aside at The Barter Market by Indigoism. In this money-free environment, all you do is provide goods, a skill or service to make an exchange. You could get a haircut, a specially composed poem, ceramic ware or even your fortune told at this social initiative encouraging human bonding. This collective effort between local makers, craftsmen, artists, musicians and skilled individuals in the community explores a scenario where money is removed from all transactions!

20 May, 4pm-9pm Annexe Studio Terrace
