Market ++

A new addition to Freespace Happening, Market++ allows handicraft artists to showcase their work in a more flexible way – be it an exhibition, participatory games, workshops, demonstrations or sharing sessions. Scattered around the booth are a dozen or so black boxes which hold strips of paper scribbled with stories and quotes. By bringing your own objects to exchange for these notes, the values of these materialistic goods are redefined.  It also stimulates participants’ imagination of unknown things.

If you are interested in sharing your works at Freespace Happening, please fill in the form here.
