Art City


154 Great George St.

21-24 September 2017


FREE STORE (presented by Art City) seeks to demonstrate, through accessible and facilitated art-making workshops, what the world might be like if we re-imagined commerce in a way that made opportunities more equitable across societal barriers. Set in a vacant storefront or retail space, the FREE STORE will be set up like a corner store. All the “products” will be hand made art pieces that are made on-site, through a series of workshops and collaborative drawing games that we will facilitate over the course of the event. Packaging materials will be provided so that after a work is made, it can be merchandized and “sold” in the FREE STORE. In order for a customer to purchase an item, they simply have to create a new artwork to leave in its place.
