                                                                        SWAP MEET

What is the value of a life story?  What would you trade for your tale?  What is the value of being truly listened to?   What makes an object valuable, the thing itself or the memory attached to it?

                                                                       SWAP MEET

SWAP MEET  is an interactive art experience which explores these questions.  Arts & the Parks guests can participate in free improvisational  performances by finding the SWAP MEET cart and sharing a story with the "vendor."    Swap Meet will pop up during Art Springs at Hill Wheatly Plaza from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday, April 30, Sunday, May 1 from 12noon to 3:00 pm and again at Emergent Arts during Gallery Walk, May 6 from  6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  Pai Yin Mros, Michelle Crandell, Steve Bonner, and Jaylene Gonsalves will be creating performances with anyone who wishes to explore the nature of interpersonal exchanges. Come one, come all!
