Event Details

Call to Artists:

Starts February 2, 2019 and runs until March 30, 2019 in the back room of CARFAC Alberta Project Space (3rd floor, 10215-112 Street, Edmonton). 

Cultural Exchange is a two-month community engagement project that questions our current economic system. In Cultural Exchange, CARFAC Alberta offers core property (art books, art supplies and equipment, other cultural materials). We invite the community to purchase or exchange this material. This is not a fundraiser; rather, this event proposes to transform part of our Edmonton space into a meeting place for discussion, alternative commerce, and to generate some “community derived revenue” for further programming in support of professional development and advocacy initiatives for Alberta’s visual artists. During the two months of Cultural Exchange, we encourage the community to bring in cultural items that are not being used: donate them or exchange them for items that can be used and appreciated by others.

Cultural Exchange is a great place to find unusual gifts and odd treasures for yourself and others! Come back often between February 2nd, 2019 and March 30th, 2019 – inventory will change constantly!

For this event to succeed, we need core cultural property. If you are cleaning out your studio, preparing for new projects and have:

art supplies and equipment  •  art books and magazines  •  cultural items (use your imagination!!)

To donate to this event, please email sharon@carfacalberta.com anytime from December 1st, 2018 to end of January 2019 or telephone Sharon at 780.421.1731 during office hours Wednesday to Friday 10am to 4pm. Emails sent after Dec 15 will be answered in January 2019.
