BazArt: Clothes – A Clothes Swap!

10.08.2013 at 12

Published at:31.07.2013

On 10 August, come to the 3rd summer bazArt, where we are going to be swapping our outfits.

Sometimes, when you are standing there contemplating the contents of your wardrobe, you may find it hard to decide what to wear. Strangely, even though the drawers  bulge with things and the shelves groan under piles of clothes, you have… nothing to wear! We all have a soft spot for the clothes we once cherished and find it hard to get rid of them. For all of us, the clothes bazArt is a great opportunity to find a loving home for our cast-offs.

How does the swap work?

No money changes hands. Anyone can take part. You can bring up to 20 items of clothing, whether new or second-hand or home-made, it doesn’t matter as long as they are in good condition. Shoes are also welcome.

Timetable

The swap kicks off at noon.

Clothes Refitting Workshop

At our special stand, you’ll have a chance to make unique MOCAK bags. Add on, re-stitch, embroider! Work with the Nemeth & Stypulska Sewing School.

Exhibition Tours

At 2 pm, visit the exhibition Economics in Art.

BazArt for Children

At noon there will be a workshop for children entitled The Richness of Art for children and young people aged 8 to 12. As part of the workshop, the participants will have an opportunity to visit the exhibition Economics in Art, find out about basic economic issues and express themselves through art works. Pre-booking necessary.

Discounts at the MOCAK Bookstore

All those participating in the clothes swap will be entitled to a 10% discount on selected books about fashion, on the basis of a stamped coupon they will be given.

Let’s Help Animals

During bazArt we will be also collecting food and toys for the puppies and kittens at the Homeless Animals’ Shelter in Krakow.

BazArt is an event accompanying the exhibition Economics in Art which deals with the relationship between art and money. The banknote is one of the symbolic themes running through the exhibition. Perversely, bazArt has chosen not to use money. The event’s message is that life without money may be possible.
