You are invited to Etsy Labs on the evening of Friday, August 24th for a very special event known as bARTer. Part party, part art exchange, part game, bARTer will be an opportunity for you to share your art, be creative, and walk home with something new and wonderful. Sounds fun, right? Check out the bARTer blog for photos from the last bARTer at http://www.cometobarter.com/.
HOW IT WORKS ---
- RSVP by adding a comment below this post with your name and, optionally, what you're going to bring.
- When you come, bring with you a piece of art. (Painting, music, video, print, sculpture, a sweater you knit, etc.)
- When you arrive, you'll exchange your art for points. (So bring something good!)
- Later in the evening, you'll use your points to bid on other people's art.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! --
-Throughout the evening, you'll have opportunity to earn more points by starting or playing a game! Before the auction begins, everyone will have an opportunity to create and run freeform games/challenges/talent contests/feats of strength/etc. Run any kind of game you like, or just play. Think about games you'd like to run, and bring anything you like for those games. Gamemasters and winners are both awarded points.
- Did we mention you should bring awesome art? :D
WHERE & WHEN? --- Etsy Labs at 325 Gold Street in Brooklyn. August 24th, 7PM till 11 or 12PM (Don't be later than 7:30, or you'll miss out! And be prepared to stay till the evening is over -- the auction will take place at the end of the event!)
